"Cyclists have to do the right thing as well, if they're obstructing traffic they need to think about whether they should be two abreast."
So is Sgt Wilson also taking responsibility for the more deaths and injuries due to cars hitting cyclist who are riding single file?
Not that I'm advocating riding two abreast all the time but the fact is that these sorts of accidents would be happening less if all cyclists in groups ride ride two abreast.

Latrobe City Cycling Club publicity officer Wayne Tunks survived a horror crash while cycling in February and knows first hand how important road safety precautions are for bike riders.
"The most important thing is a helmet," Mr Tunks said.
No Mr Tunks you have it wrong......................the most important thing is careful drivers that do not hit cyclists.

It is the context. In the event of an accident motorists have seatbelts, often airbags and are encased in a cabin designed to minimise injury to the occupants. I certainly agree that for cyclists (let alone all road users) that accident prevention is far better.

Nice to see police with a grip on the rules and promoting them. The story might be more complete with a statement about whether the driver has been charged.
