Which was my point exactly. I saw the bike lane rule, and their dictionary definition of bike lane, and it doesn't mention anything about separated lanes, hence my question. It seems to me that a separated lane is midway between off-road and on-road, and might therefore be open to interpretation as either. Are there any legal precedents defining which category it fits into?
Rule 153 defines what a bicycle lane is, so until they bring out a new rule, they can't force us to use these things.
I know, Euan, I read that one. It says that it's a marked lane starting at a Bike Lane sign and ending at an End Bike Lane sign, which describes the Fitzroy Rd bike lane perfectly. There's no exclusion that I could see of bike lanes with kerbing separating them from motorist lanes.
Happy to be proven wrong, of course, as I don't like these lanes, either.
