It would be interesting to ride a road with these markings to see what imact it has on your perception of the road width/corner etc.

I'm all for the KISS theory in most things. Start adding all these so called scientific solutions into a simple road and it will only cause more confusion. I would like to know how many of these scientists are actually bike riders. Surely their time, and OUR money could be spent on better things.

Geat idea (not) , Lets paint the road in in paint so when it rains (New Zealand remember )  they will crash before the corner lowering accidents in that
particular spot .
or 
"idea" Lets make the road look narrower !===== Lets make this corner more difficult than it really is .
How do I get one of these high paid idea jobs .
Ive got one .
Lets pour oil on the road and put up a sign saying "oil on road " that will slow them down .
Bugger ,been done .with white paint !

Sound like a linemarker don't I . That's because I am one . What a Face

Same job but we realised we did more work with the linemarkers than actual traffic control . Carol always asked "how come you come home covered in white paint."?
I think the people who pay us have forgotten we exist

pug - large pink animal with a curly tail
nin tin dough - computer game
munnwe stroney - soup
min- male of the species
mess kara - eye makeup
mcKennock - person who fixes cars
Mere - Mayor
leather - foam produced from soap
lift - departed
Kiri Pecker - famous Australian businessman
kittle crusps - potato chips
Ken's - Cairns
jungle bills - Christmas carol
inner me - enemy

bun button - been bitten by insect
beard - a place to sleep
sucks peck - half a dozen beers
Ear New Zulland - an extinct airline

I must agree , all that white paint must change how the surface feels to ride on even if it is non slip paint . Not sure I'm keen on the idea .

I wonder if this idea works better ?



And couldn't resist this one, I think it must have been when Gus was on holidays, without his direction the team sort of lost their way:

Reminds me of an actual conversation I had with a friend who is a big Holden fan.

Me: You know that in New Zealand you can't buy a commodore with a Vee Six?

Paul: Oh no, don't tell me they're making them with the poxy 4 cylinder again...

Me: No, over there you have to have a vee sucks! lol!

Paul: [groan]
