Ooops! Got caught out on that one as the Feral-Hun free-view-gate caught me out and I could not see it fully

Not entirely sure but I will wager that this was also a case of pedestrian error. This web-page - http://www.victoriawalks.org.au/news/1604 - from Victoria Walks lists a series of alleged pedestrians killed by bicycle riders, but several are incidents that were later deemed to have been NOT the fault of the bicycle rider. Mr McKenzie, and the lady who died following the Parkville collision were both not the rider's fault. Following links to the Vicroads data from that Age article - https://www.theage.com.au/opinion/licen ... vr4pc.html - finds a whole listing of collisions in 2013 yet no apparent pedestrian fatality from any cyclist. I call BS on that one!
