    Operation Nora (7 -11 Feb)

    Victoria Police Online News Centre - Operation Nora targets cyclists and drivers in Melbourne

    Went through Swanston/Flinders/Collins st this morning at around 7.45 but didnt see any signs of increased presence.

    Any other reports would be appreciated...

    Seriously, this is a waste of tax payers money, the reasons why cyclists die is because of cars. The reason it's gone up is because more people are cycling, so more cyclists are now in harms way, and more cyclists are having to use roads that aren't equiped for cyclists, it's basic percentages.

    They wont have anything on me, I've got lights, helmet, brakes, etc. But I'm pissed that we're the targets, per usual the car is king and anyone interfering with cars and roads is an intruder that must be scrutinized.

    Didnt see any cops on footscray rd today, saw a few cop cars near flinders st.
