Chaos on our roads

WHY was there a whole string of cars crawling slowly along Louis Bazzo Dr on Sunday morning?

Just a very large group of cyclists triumphantly and fully occupying the entire lane heading east toward Boreen Point!

Like a shoal of fish sluggishly seeking a sense of identity, this dense group was revelling in its unescorted command of the roadway, as it cheerfully ignored the growing line of traffic it was illegally obstructing.

Motorists trapped behind could not pass the moronic aggregation of aliens for some time, as this narrow and winding country road has no bike lane and presents very few safe passing opportunities.

Perhaps the cyclists were encouraged by council's increasingly having allowed entire road systems to be closed for various macabre, fringe-group events including bicycle-swarming.

Nevertheless, if this lamentable cult of pedal-philes is so intent on cluttering our roads, perhaps its members ought to have rear-vision mirrors, pay substantial registration and compulsory third party insurance fees like all other road users and obey the road rules.
