How to mark a roundabout properly
These two photoghraphs, taken within the Noosa shire area, show how out council should be using the BAZ signs, the yellow bike logo, a very large sign, stuck mid lane, not in the gutter.
The other picture shows how cyclists should be served with signage at the roundabout, again, not a tiny sign stuck in the gutter, but proper green lanes allowing for left, right and straight on positioning.
Of course, such obvious signage would not be so vital if our fellow road users knew how to behave at roundabouts.
This requires large scale public education, and not just from the Toowoomba Regional Council either.
Clearly, there are many agencies of government that should, must, start playing their part in educating motorists and cyclists in how to cooperate on our roadways.
