I’m annoyed with the Victorian Police at the moment.
Hold on… let me back up a bit…
This woman is a danger to other road users and should not be allowed to drive a vehicle:
Whoops… not far back enough…
On Thursday I was riding to work as usual and had turned into Ivanhoe Street from Waverley Road, my next turn is a right into Leicester Ave. As I was nearing the right turn I heard the car behind me – I had seen it in my mirror – come over the speedhump quite hard (ie quite fast) so I moved a bit more to the right (to be just to the left of the centre of the road) and indicated right in accordance with this road rule:
31. Starting a right turn from a road (except a multi-lane road) (3) If the road does not have a dividing line or median strip and is not a one-way road, the driver must approach and enter the intersection from the left of, parallel to, and as near as practicable to, the centre of the road.
So there I was: riding to the left of the centre of the road and indicating right. So what did the car do?
