Cycle Safety GOLD COAST
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hello ALL:)

I have joined this forum with a specific goal to help my son. He is doing a research project at school his topic is the Perception of Safety for Cyclists on Tallebudgera Creek Road.

He likes to cycle but I won't let him ride along this road as I think it unsafe. He would also like to approach local council etc authorities to try and get a bike way built. (Big ambitions)

Any way he has a little survey he needs cyclist to do So if anybody is familiar with the road or likes to ride it could I please ask you to do the survey. :o

I am sure if you would like to add additional comments from your experiences that would be great too. I have attached a word doc with the survey this can be emailed back to me kgwinner(at) tpg.com.au- Or I have pasted it below if technology is not kind.

Thank you in advanced if you can help him with the survey. Much appreciated

As someone who regularly rides on that road (both day and night) I'll reply here. Your son actually left a comment on my blog about this survey as well, FWIW.

Disagree - It's no worse than any other road on the Gold Coast.

Strongly disagree - bike paths don't do anything to increase cyclist safety -- and the majority of cyclists on that road wouldn't use it anyway.

Strongly disagree - same reasons as above.

Agree - But first I'd settle for existing speed limits being enforced.

Strongly disagree - banning cyclists from a particular road won't stop Queensland from topping the national road toll year after year, considering that cyclists actually make up a minute percentage of overall road deaths.

See my answer to question one, this is effectively the same question rehashed.
