Of course, if I just held back from reading the comments, I wouldn't get so worked up that soothing was necessary. But I can't help myself. It's like not being able to resist staring at a terrible car accident or a crazy person. For some reason, us humans are into train wrecks.
Today, I was reading Bike riders' bid for car-free zone to extend into St Kilda Road in The Age. Have a read if you like. If you can't be bothered, it can be summed-up thus; some bike riders are bidding to extend the car-free zone into St Kilda Road.
And, here's what some people said (my comments in a soothing shade of blue):
Let bike riders pay for it then. They want the world and pay nothing towards the changes. Make it a tollway for them, they can easily fit e tags to their bikes. Fact is car and truck drivers pay fuel excise and registration fees that pay for the roads to be maintained. If these jerks want access, pay up. Enough is enough. Mike, VIC
