A motorbike driver has been criticized for the ‘selfish’ act of parking in a space reserved for ‘parents with prams’.

The view was captured in a parking lot in the suburb of Chatswood, on the city’s Lower North Shore.

Despite the clearly marked red square, which also featured the outline of a pram and a “parents with prams” sign directly above the car’s location, the motorcycle was brazenly parked in the space.

Some comments joked that the owner of the motorcycle must have a “folding stroller” or “side car”.

Another user also shared his experiences of Range Rovers and other large cars occupying multiple motorcycle slots.

However, a parent blasted the motorcyclist and said: ‘It angers me that they don’t see how useful the parking spaces are.

“I have a two-year-old child and I am pregnant with twins. Yeah. Try getting a toddler in and out of a car in a normal place when you’re the size of a creepy house,” she wrote.

“We bought a van with sliding doors for the rear seats, but that doesn’t help me get in, so I usually try to park away from other cars because the pram spaces here are always taken by the Ferraris of midlife crisis I’m still trapped by other cars I had to crawl into the car through the trunk to get home FFS.

“Tell me again how selfish you are and have no empathy for others. If it wasn’t illegal they would also park in handicapped spaces, guarantee that.

According to NRMAthe limitations of “parents with stroller car spaces” are not legally enforceable as they are provided by owners of private property, such as shopping malls or parking lots.

In comparison, it is actually illegal to park in a spot marked as an accessible parking space, which is reserved for people with a valid permit. .

This can result in a discovery on the spot or a penalty notice of $581 and a demerit point.

However, it is at “management’s discretion” how they wish to enforce parent parking rules. For example, they could ask someone to leave the place.

“Children are at greater risk of being involved in an accident due to their unpredictability around cars and they can also be difficult for other drivers to see, so ensuring convenient parking at proximity to entrances is available for parents with young children,” they said. .

You better be careful, you better not cry, you better not pout. And I’ll tell you why: Tokyo’s seasonal – and breathtaking – illuminations are back for another winter!

Many places across Japan are lit up for the holiday season, and central Tokyo is no exception. While the air is getting colder here, Tokyo luckily only has a few snowy days a year, making the capital region a biker’s paradise even in winter. So get on your bikes, turn on your headlights and let’s see three of the most dazzling illumination events in the Japanese capital.

These spots aren’t particularly geared towards bikers, but motorbikes definitely make your sightseeing easier than driving or taking the subway. As I wrote about in Japan Motorcycle Diaries #1, parking is limited and expensive in central Tokyo, and these places are usually crowded with cars during the festive and scalloped season. But bikers can easily get around and there is a chance to stop for a moment to take pictures. That said, make sure you don’t block traffic or anyone else.

The annual illumination of Naka-dori Street in Tokyo’s Marunouchi district near Tokyo Station began on November 10 this year and will continue until February 19. In its 21st iteration, more than 340 trees in the area around the 1.2 kilometer street will be illuminated by some 1.2 million LEDs. Although Marunouchi is generally known as a financial district with high-rise office buildings, Naka-dori Street’s tree-lined stone sidewalks, trendy shops and cafes give it a very different feel to the streets surrounding.

Keyakizaka Street in Tokyo’s Minato district is illuminated on November 11, 2021. Tokyo Tower can be seen in the background just right of center. (Mainichi/Tatsuma Kasama)

In the Minato district, Keyakizaka Street, next to the Roppongi Hills complex, turned on its lights on the same evening, and they will be on every night until December 25. a very bright punch. It is definitely worth a look. Unlike many other illumination events in the city, Keyakizaka Street is almost entirely done in blue and white LEDs, creating a distinct atmosphere. Plus, the proximity to Tokyo Tower means you can spice up your lighting shots with the iconic landmark in the background.

The author’s motorcycle is seen on Omotesando Avenue in the Shibuya district of Tokyo, December 10, 2021. (Mainichi/Tatsuma Kasama)

Around 150 zelkova trees along Omotesando Avenue between Omotesando and Harajuku stations will be adorned with around 900,000 lights from December 1 to 29. This avenue is also one of the trendiest in Tokyo and the widest among the three illuminated roads mentioned here. So you might find a place to park your bike nearby to stroll around the neighborhood, including the famous Takeshita Street just a few blocks away.

If you’re unfamiliar with Tokyo’s geography, I highly recommend locking your smartphone to a phone holder so you can use a navigation app. The roads in the city center are, it must be said, complex. Moreover, these three spots are popular with Tokyoites as well as tourists. So if you are wary of crowds, I have another place for night geeks.

The author’s motorcycle is seen in the “Italian quarter” of the Shiodome district of Minato Ward on October 31, 2022. A JRA building with stone columns is seen in the background. (Mainichi/Tatsuma Kasama)

And this place is an area of ​​the Shiodome district of Minato Ward called the “Italian Quarter” by some photographers. It was so nicknamed perhaps because the cobblestone roads and square, an Italian restaurant and the stone columns in front of one of the buildings are reminiscent of Rome. If you want to get there, plug “JRA Shiodome” into your navigation app. It’s the majestic colonnaded building, and it houses an offsite horse racing betting office of the Japan Racing Association (JRA). I agree that “Italian quarter” sounds much better, but alas it’s just a nickname, so the JRA office is a safer bet to take you to this little slice of urban nighttime beauty.

We received a question from a reader regarding the motorcycle engine displacements available to foreign tourists in Japan with an international permit.

The international driving license based on the Geneva Convention on Road Traffic of 1945 has only one class of motorcycles, regardless of displacement. However, there are some cases in which international permits are stamped with a restriction, according to Rental819 (www.rental819.com/english), depending on the country or region where they are issued. The National Police Agency’s official response to the question was, “To ride a motorcycle in Japan with an international license, there are no limitations regarding engine displacements.”

That said, if you’ve only ridden small motorcycles in your home country, riding a big one, especially in a foreign country with different traffic rules, can be dangerous. Please take this into account when renting your bike.

A high school encounter with the 1969 American road movie “Easy Rider” changed his life, as he fell head over heels in love with the motorcycles driven by the hippie protagonists played by Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper.

Motorcyclists will take to the streets to pay tribute to a much loved member of the community.

Longtime WAC Motorcycle Club member Bob Fisher has died aged 73.

His wife and manager of the club’s Facebook page, Dawn Thomas, paid tribute to him, having been with him for more than 25 years.

She said: “He will be greatly missed.

“He was a strong character, very direct, always someone you could count on to help if necessary.

“A good member of the committee who always gave his honest opinion.

“A fabulous but not indulgent father and grandfather.

“He was my rock and allowed me to grow and flourish as a person.”

Dawn and Bob met 26 years ago when he worked at CJ Motorcycles in Droitwich, and she was the manager of Stars and Stripes Pizza, a cafe where Bob was a regular customer.

His interest in motorcycles started at a young age when he used to go to the local grass track and trials with his grandfather.

Bob passed his test as soon as he could and began organizing motorcycle road races internationally.

About 20 years ago, Bob and Dawn gave up marshalling to get involved in the WAC.

Outside of motorcycles, Bob first worked as a fuel oil salesman before becoming a traffic policeman, a role he held for many years.

When he retired, he worked part-time for a company that provided supplies for nursing homes.

Even as he got older, he continued to help people with their motorcycles and kept his and Dawn’s three bikes and two cars in boat form.

Reflecting on their time together, Dawn added: “We had some lovely days with our dog Freddie, his best friend, as well as walks in Wales or the Old Hills.

“My most treasured memory was probably our times on the bike, our holidays in Scotland or Northern Ireland, or even just a summer evening for an ice cream.

“He would almost always pull my bike out of the garage and start it for me and come out onto the road to see me off if he didn’t join.”

Bob’s funeral will be at 1:45 p.m. next Tuesday, November 15, at Worcester Crematorium.

To pay their respects, WAC organized a motorbike escort from Checketts Lane, starting around 1pm.

Later, Lehigh’s 2003 Honda motorcycle and a car driven by Allen Taylor collided at 4:15 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of Manchester Road and Cambridge Drive, according to Middletown Police.

Lehigh was traveling west on Manchester and Taylor was traveling south on Cambridge, according to Middletown police. Police do not believe impaired driving or speeding caused the accident which is still under investigation.

Taylor, the only person in the vehicle, was not injured, police said.

Bowling said his father lived in Middletown until his wife, Loretta “Jo”, completed a mission in Richmond. They had planned to move to Middletown, Bowling said.

Lehigh was talking to his wife on his headset when the accident happened, his daughter said. Then the phone broke down.

Bowling tracked his father’s cell phone to Atrium Medical Center. On her way to the hospital, she walked past the scene of the accident and was told that her father was being airlifted to MVH.

She drove to Miami Valley and sat with her father until his death. Jo Lehigh arrived at the hospital Sunday evening, Bowling said.

“This is a terrible tragedy that has shaken our whole world,” Bowling wrote to family and friends. “We have had good memories recently as he was here to visit us. I’m so glad we had this time. This man was the strongest, toughest, most loving man I have ever known. He was our rock.

Besides his wife, he is survived by three daughters, Wendy Wheeler, Casey Taylor and Bowling.

Bowling said his father would be cremated and the family would hold a private celebration of the service of life. Donald Jordan Funeral Home is handling arraignments.

PETALING JAYA: The government should review and revise the mechanism of learner motorcyclist driving license (LDL or “L” permit) according to the times, in order to ensure better competence of motorcyclists and improve
road safety.

The President of the Malaysian Road Safety Research Institute, Professor Wong Shaw Voon, in calling for change, said the current system is outdated and poses a safety hazard to motorbike LDL holders and other road users. of the road.

Currently, the motorcycle LDL is issued to driving school students after they have completed and passed the first compulsory course of the driver education program and the computer-based driving test.

The LDL is valid for two years (although the holder must renew it every three months), during which time the holder must register with a driving school for motorcycle circuit training or the second course of the LDL program. driving studies.

The second course, which culminates in a test conducted by the Road Transport Department (RTD), is to certify that the license holder is competent to attain one of two classes of full motorcycle license (two wheelers), according to which is requested: “B2” for motorcycles not exceeding 250 cc and “B” for motorcycles with unlimited displacement.

Wong said most LDL motorcycle holders ride motorcycles on public roads after taking course one, not going through course two. Many also cling too long to their temporary LDLs.

“They are also brazenly going against the LDL limitation by carrying passengers, creating more danger to themselves and other road users.

“Until 30 years ago, there weren’t many driving schools in Malaysia. While most schools were designed to train students to drive cars and trucks, the places available to learn to drive and ride motorcycles were limited.

“So the LDL was issued to holders to practice and familiarize themselves with motorcycles on public roads, before taking the class test,” he said, adding that our roads do not weren’t as busy then and road safety wasn’t a big issue either.

Therefore, the issuance of LDL for motorcycles and the rules that came with it made sense. But now the situation is different as there are more driving schools all over the country where LDL holders can actually learn to drive and ride motorcycles.

In July, the RTD discovered that high-powered motorcyclists were using LDLs for too long without passing the proper tests to obtain the Class ‘B’ licence.

He said it’s worrying that these LDL holders are driving big, powerful machines at high speeds all over the country, without being officially certified competent enough to have a “B” license.

Universiti Sains Malaysia transport engineering professor Dr Ahmad Farhan Mohd Sadullah agrees with Wong.

“The current system and practice are not enough to guarantee the competence of the riders. Many school children learn to ride motorcycles from their parents and older friends, who themselves are not always competent enough. We want all legal riders to be competent, not just able to ride a motorcycle.

Ahmad added that without a major overhaul of the system, more incompetent motorcyclists will be on the roads, continuing the sad trend of motorcyclists making up the highest composition of road accidents and fatalities.

“The license is the government’s assurance of the competence of the driver of the vehicle. If the license does not guarantee this, then the system has failed.

Ahmad said revisions should also be made to the driving institutes curriculum, training and testing methods, and the application of RTD.

Such a major change in the system will require an integrated effort between government agencies, such as the police and RTD.
