while it continues to oppose the enforcement on the roads of these and other cyclists’ safety regulations.
Bicycle Victoria’s doubletalk and erroneous advocacy punishes cyclists by keeping them in the dark and in harms way.
"We are asking for Police bike patrols across Australia to help us encourage everyone who rides at night to have working lights"
Harry Barber CEO Bicycle Victoria
Indeed the Bicycle Victoria, CEO, Harry Barber, has sought to confuse the issue further of enforcement and cyclists identification Cyclists Identification Terry Mulder by stating:
“Better enforcement rather than better identification would solve the problem (of cyclists committing road offences).
These statements by Harry Barber appear to be just plain double-talk.
Instead, Bicycle Victoria wants Police to hand out bike lights to cyclists and ask them to please put them on.
Bicycle Victoria's erroneous advocacy enabling reckless, illegitimate road usage,
or, any kind of cycling more often,
makes cyclists the resented, illegitimate, spoilt brats of the roads,
and keeps them as such.
As a result Bicycle Victoria's erroneous advocacy
actually punishes more cyclists more often Vigilante Acts Punish Cyclists
