War of the Worlds
From the Sydney Morning Herald today;
"Motorists are ignoring no-entry signs to slash travel times by making rat runs across a new bridge that links Rhodes and Wentworth Point in Sydney's west.
Three weeks after it was opened to cyclists, pedestrians and buses, motorists have been spotted illegally crossing the 300-metre Bennelong Bridge to avoid a round trip of about 8 kilometres between the two suburbs. Local residents have urged Roads and Maritime Services to fast-track the installation of cameras to deter motorists from crossing the $63 million bridge.
Parliamentary Secretary for Roads John Sidoti said he was concerned the bridge was being used by a small number of motorists who knew they were doing the wrong thing.
Really ? D'ya think ?
'Clear signs and road markings are in place to warn drivers that the bridge is for public transport use only,' he said. 'Authorities will continue to enforce the law but hopefully drivers also use common sense.'
Oh well, we're doomed.
On the plus side, if #GetStuffedDunc directs all his flying monkeys over to Rhodes for revenue raising for the next three months; it'll at least give those of us on bikes a rest from being pulled over for Random Bell Testing - I kid you not.
