James Lee replied to Dan's discussion Tow path NEW loose chippings!!!???
"Black tarmac with white lines is the highest contrast road for an autonomous vehicle’s optical sensor system. What they don’t like is any of fifty shades of grey."

James Lee replied to Dan's discussion Tow path NEW loose chippings!!!???
"Roads are now being dressed with BLACK tarmac. The limestone chipping in store are now useless, except for spreading loose on cycleways. A stealth turnaround as part of the 'convert the roads for autonomous cars' long term plan."

James Lee replied to Robert Jones's discussion Another Taxi Post
"Cycling the 'wrong way' is where you sit on the handlebars and grasp the saddle with your hands. If a cyclist is cycling the' right way' against the signed direction of traffic, the cyclist simply hops off to become a pedestrian."

James Lee replied to Diesel Domestique's discussion Hagley Road incident

James Lee replied to Steve Nickless's discussion Have bells gone out of fashion?
"When I appraoch peds, I start coughing like an eighty a day man. As I ride past, I gasp out with a croak "Thank you." Most of the time they look at me as if the are thinking "So cycling is good for your healthy, is it?""

James Lee replied to Cazza's discussion verbal abuse - on the increase?
"What really, really, really makes me chuckle is when a young numptie sings that famous Freddie Mercury song, and suddenly stops singing because they realise the next lyric is “I want to ride it where I like.”"

James Lee replied to Cazza's discussion verbal abuse - on the increase?
"You've never heard a cyclist shout at a motorist ? Tip. When a motorist is slow away from a set of traffic lights, he's "curb dozing". The cyclist behind him will shout "get on with it, then!" at the top of his voice,…"
