Remember people, a bit of respect in this of all threads. Wanna argue issues? Start a new one.

Still waiting for the QPS to release further details. They know his age, so we should hear who the poor chap is soon.

It came up on the news feed. Not my intent to dilute tragedies. Someone has lost a father/husband/brother/uncle today.

That is a showtime of an intersection Talbot Street and the Princes Highway. MCS trucks que back up Talbot street waiting to get out on to the highway. there is no light for them and they need all 3 lanes of the Princes highway top get in and out so they have to be super assertive to get out otherwise they will sit there for ever. When they see an opportunity they don't hesitate and they can not see any cyclists on their left at all. The intersection needs traffic lights desperately, at the moment pedestrians and cyclists can not be seen by the trucks.

it's time for police, lawyers, and judges to remind themselves enforcement of the law is there as a deterrent.
let's hope this poor guy pulls through, and the law is meted in full force at the hit and run driver.

sadly, I think Australia will have to face the same as London, before law enforcers wake up to themselves about what's going on.

6 cyclist deaths in 2 weeks in London, 5 involving heavy vehicles, and the police still think it's an issue of cyclists not wearing helmets or hi vis clothing!

They seem to have someone, presumably correctly. The more runners that are caught the less the chance that others, down the track, will do a runner.

A 74-year-old male cyclist has died as a result of injuries he sustained in a traffic crash at Scarborough last week.

Just after 7pm on November 26, a four-wheel drive collided with a bicycle on Bird of Passage Parade.

The male cyclist sustained serious injuries and was transported to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital where he was pronounced deceased today.

The Forensic Crash Unit is continuing its investigations into the incident.
