This is where both bikes and cars are stopped at a traffic light?

It seems that some cyclists are unaware of the risk involved by failing to give way.

The above seems like common sense to someone who has been riding and driving motorbikes, cars, bicycles and trucks on the roads for over thirty years. "Left side is Suicide" I recall reading on a bumper sticker on a truck I overtook on the left many, many moons ago. I live to tell the tale today. The prob with a lot of young / inexperienced / immature road users these days is just that - they're young, inexperienced and immaturetermx wrote:Vicroads website says:
Left turning vehicle
Rule: A bike rider must not ride on the left side of a vehicle that is indicating left and turning at an intersection.
Tip: Stay in the traffic lane behind the turning vehicle
