    There's no longer age-related re-testing, that was scrapped some years ago. Just a medical.

    And yet hitting cyclists is already against the law. Why is everyone angry with cyclists for getting injured and killed?

    No it isn’t. At least not on its own.

    Would you like to outline the relevant laws for us Graeme?

    I'm not hugely in favour of severe punishment for road accidents. But I am in favour of keeping the blame where it belongs, with drivers and roads. And trying to change the drivers and the roads rather than making cyclists do everything differently.

    Re: hi-viz: I wear a lightweight velcro-fastening XXL vest in day-glo yellow with reflectors that goes over everything and cost me $8. It scrunches up really small in a bag or pannier. I sometimes leave it sitting on the bike when I lock it up and no one has ever pinched it. For me, it's less hassle to carry around than the wet-weather gear I usually carry.

    Those wishing to debate the issues surrounding compulsory-helmet-wearing may wish to read this other PAS thread from 2 years ago .

    OK, this is all getting complicated. Why don't we make it compulsory for drivers not to hit cyclists? That's actually the problem, isn't it? Cyclists don't throw themselves under the wheels of cars and trucks.

    And yet hitting cyclists is already against the law. Why is everyone angry with cyclists for getting injured and killed?

    Just about dying with jealousy over these wonderful edible gardens, Ben and Jos! And Islander's naked swims! Beaches too crowded in these parts for such gallivanting....
