I would like to say thank you to Liesl Tesch (Member for Gosford) for her article in the Coast Community Pelican Post dated July 1, 2021 “Bike users encourage more cycling and more road safety” and especially for her mention of “riders must ensure they keep to the left on shared paths and use their bell when approaching pedestrians, allowing a metre when passing”.
I have been advocating this for a number of years and for pedestrians to take heed when the courtesy of the bell is used to keep to the left and call out a “Thank you”.
Being a senior I, like many others, do not hear a bike approaching.
I would like to call out to operators of motorised scooters and motorised mobility scooters the courtesy of a warning bell would be greatly appreciated.
