New speed rule aims to safeguard emergency workers on roadside

This law seems sensible enough. Though it is odd that our government sees that such protections are needed for vulnerable emergency workers but not vulnerable road users like cyclists.

Pulling a driver over is one of the most dangerous jobs for police, says acting assistant commissioner of road policing Deb Robertson.
"We've lost 28 police in the course of history from roadside intercepts; the last one was in 2005,"


A sad statistic. But surely cyclists lives should matter too?
