Is this Clover’s vision for Sydney motorists?
May 10, 2022
You may have seen this "sculpture" on Hickson Road, Walsh Bay in Sydney's CBD. We're not sure if its art, or Clover's vision for what she'd like to do to all of Sydney's motor vehicles. And you may well be excused for thinking so when you look at what's being done to Sydney's streets to remove cars and delivery vehicles from them. With exorbitant parking fees and levies, the never ending eradication of vehicle lanes converted to virtually unused bike lanes, the reduc... Continue reading
More of Motorist revenues should be spent on building and fixing our roads
May 09, 2022
We believe only a fraction of the monies motorists pay each year make their way to being spent on building and fixing our roads, with a large portion of motorist revenues misappropriated as tax by state and local governments. More of the money raised from motorists should be spent on fixing our free roads to alleviate the ever worsening congestion and address safety issues, not treated as a tax on motorists.

An inquiry needed into the destination of Motorist revenues
May 09, 2022
Huge amounts of money are paid by motorists every year in the form of taxes, levies, fees, duties, fines and tolls and it's important to know where that money goes and what's being done with it, on a continuing basis. Are motorist revenues used for building and fixing roads, or are motorists simply paying more tax? We need an open and transparent inquiry into where the billions of dollars motorists pay each year end up, and if motorists are being gouged. Continue reading
Sydney slows down as state government pushes for lower speed limits
April 11, 2022
Motorists could be forced to slow down to 40km/h when driving throughout the City of Sydney, as the NSW government works with local councils to reduce speed limits in areas with high numbers of pedestrians and cyclists.
Sydney CBD bike lanes a guise for removing cars from our streets.
April 05, 2022
Sydney CBD's ever increasing installation of bike lanes that have taken over much needed traffic lanes and essential delivery parking are a guise for council to further reduce cars in Sydney CBD, not addressing any cyclist's needs. Most of the new bike lanes are hardly even used and far disproportionally favour cyclist's use of our streets over motorists.
We think most CBD bike lanes should be ripped up and replaced with shared lanes, green zones that both cars and bikes can use. And, to ensure safety, speed limits on t... Continue reading
A Rough Ride for Australian Motorists
December 08, 2021
Australian motorists have for a long time now been given a rough ride by all levels of Australian government. Nothing is being done to fix the ever increasing congestion levels on our roads other than to force us onto expensive tolls roads. We are overcharged at all levels of government, imposed with punishing fees and fines, made to pay ludicrous parking costs, constantly being pushed from city streets to make way for bikes or trams, we're blamed for global warming and allowed to die or be injured in huge numbers on our roads ea...

Sydney's Pitt Street butchered.
September 22, 2021
In Sydney City's drive to eradicate vehicles from our roads under the guise of needing more bike lanes, Sydney's Pitt Street has been unnecessarily butchered causing huge problems for traffic flow and delivery parking. Two traffic lanes essential for deliveries and traffic flow have been eradicated to make way for a virtually unused bike lane, forcing vehicles needing to use the northern end of Pitt Street into the worst congestion. It's sheer madness!
Two lanes of busy Pitt Street Sydney, crucial... Continue reading
Driving towards a greener motoring
September 21, 2021
Motorists have been a major source of greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change. However, we believe the vast majority of motorists would prefer to drive clean energy vehicles and not contribute to climate change at all given the chance. And every assistance should be given to motorists wanting to make the change from fossil burning vehicles to electric.
Currently there are no real incenti... Continue reading
