Think Bike - NO think CAR!


You know, I really like bikes and I even own one, well a off-road bike not a road bike. But what is up with everyone having this THINK BIKE sticker on their cars?

The bikes on the road are the ones that must keep an eye out for the cars as the roads are designed to be used mainly by cars......not bikes!

Every morning coming to work the guys/girls on their bikes/scooter just do what they want. They ride in the yellow lanes, they ride in-between the cars and often I even see them driving right into oncoming traffic......in the other LANE!

Yes we must THINK BIKE but I really believe that the BIKES must THINK CAR more!

    Lane splitting is legal in SA. Please be aware of bikes in this scenario. https://www.arrivealive.co.za/Lane-Splitting-Advice-and-Guidelines-for-Bikers-from-the-Experts

    However - agreed, many motorcycle riders do somewhat take the piss . The slogan works better in countries with higher riding standards. I have seen 'Think Car' stickers for bikers too.

    You need to brush up on your road laws and get your facts straight before writing rubbish here. It is legal for motorcycles to drive between cars (lane splitting), but not over solid lines.

    Biker.... you are quite correct, bikes do have equal rights on the road. That does not give them the right to travel down the white and yellow lines, and between cars when it suits them . If they get cut off or bumped on the highway they blame the car drivers for not looking, but 0.025sec ago he was not next to the car, he was behind another car diving across to get ahead, or doing 120 while the cars are at 60. I agree with the poster and Colin. Bike Think is a better motto.

    @Biker.... 99% of the bikers on the road drive in-between the cars and some even into oncoming traffic. The law does not allow bikes to do this....

    Since when are roads designed to be used mainly by cars? It is this attitude of car drivers that makes it difficult for us bikers. We pay license fees just like everybody else to use the roads. And it's a few bikers that give all the rest a bad name.
