    You mean the guys driving on the lane separators or in the yellow zone? Personally I adopted the attitude that bikers know they should steer clear about 1m-1.5m of my car because if they ever feel the need to get into a vs match the laws of momentum says they will be my bitch 99.9% of the time without me even doing anything.

    I value my life more than a longer commute, I'd rather take my chances in a 6-airbag 5-star NCAP car.

    Ah yes. I remember when I was a cager and bike hater.. until I just bought a bike. My life was never the same again. I'm at that point where I literally get kak grumpy when I have to drive a car.

    I prefer to just sleep in, leave when traffic has died down and leave work before traffic starts. Best of both worlds.

    I honestly reckon they should just build a bike lane right in the middle of the N1, between those concrete blocks even.

    Make it so that cars can't get into it and we'll happily be on our merry way without any hassle.

    Because the safety risk (cars) is remove everyone will switch soon enough solving the entire traffic problem.

    But just officially allowing bikes (low congestion vehicles) to use the Bus lane on the N2 would already be a very good start.

    For that matter run the bike lane along the rail road tracks and well away from the cars. Problem solved and minimal alternation required.

    freedom = no pants?

    I make space for bikes, and usually for lorries as well.

    Some people need Think Lorry stickers.
    I don't stick stuff on my car, not an ad board.
