As of the 26 April 2016, the state government in Western Australia made it legal for cyclists to ride on footpaths. As a father of a six year old boy this is fantastic news for me as I can now ride with him on the path instead of riding on the road while he travels on the path. But as a traffic engineer this raises some interesting challenges particularly in the temporary traffic management space.
The wet weather has finally hit us here in WA. With wet weather comes wet roads and a whole new range of challenges for those using them. Recently, on my way back to the office I came across the unfortunate event shown in the photo. While I can only guess at what series of events brought this car and its occupants to the situation shown, one thing is certain, the wet road played a part.
It is with great pleasure that I introduce GAF Traffic's new website! I want to say a big thanks to Scott Ingram and his team at Helium Digital for all their hard work and putting up with my "attention to detail," at least that what I'm going to call it.
