See earlier comments. The issue needs to be won amongst cyclists and cyclists advocacy groups before the real headway with government is made. Unfortunately many cyclists and cycle advocacy groups are only interested in themselves and not the wider cycling community.
At the very least, you should support the LDP because philosophically they support your view.
re road rules, aren't there Australian Road Rules which most States generally mirror?
"The issue needs to be won amongst cyclists and cyclists advocacy groups before the real headway with government is made." After 261 pages you clearly don't have consensus here and I very much doubt you ever will. If you wait to get all cyclists behind you, you will be waiting until hell freezes over.
You should lobby government, write letters, hold protest rallies now.
