Re: How was your commute today

I sent emails to our Admin and our contacts at BN with a 'tell me I received your email' option. Our Admin and BN contacts, I am still waiting for them to read the emails.

Cyclists fined for using mobile phones while riding

In a recent police operation three cyclists (and about 224 motorists) were caught using mobile phones when cycling/driving.

Aorta crush their phones as they do with hoon's cars!

Also nine cyclists were not wearing helmets, but no reports of anyone not wearing a seat belt.
