I remember Ron Nightingale! Oh, yes, I had a few dealings with him when I lived and worked in Brisbane. Oh, yes!

Y'know Womble, sometimes yer lack of manners can be somewhat disconcerting. :P

Mr Nightingale and Co have failed to address the fundamental issues that affect all cyclists and that is the behaviour of their so called professional drivers. I see on a daily basis disgusting behaviour, uncourteous driving, dangerous driving, and the blatant flaunting of road rules by the so called professional drivers in sometimes unroadworthy vehicles that put other peoples lives at risk. The people whose road behaviour should be exemplary. In all manner of vehicles from courier vans through to semi trailers, and road trains in certain parts.
It's always easy to blame the vulnerable, even bullyish, but to come up with reasonable workable solutions that impact positively and fairly upon all road users takes a little more intelligence, such as solutions offered in overseas countries.
Unfortunately this mob does not have the necessary qualifications, nor experience to formulate such strategies. And therefore this country will always lag decades behind worlds best practice in road building, design, driver licensing, and law enforcement.

Sorry, professional confidentialities and all that. But I can say my opinion of the gentleman was not terribly high.

Well that proves you're better than Ron right there. I'll still let him know he can count on yours and Michael Schumacker's support regardless. I'm sure Fritz drove a Rainbow Couriers van before his talent was discovered.
