"If they are risking their own life, so be it that's their problem"
I 100% agree. I've never once been hit or even had a close call when I've run a red light, never hit a pedestrian when going through a pedestrian crossing.. but I've been hit by cars doing U-Turns, opening doors, coming up on my right and pulling infront of me...
Bad example to point out the courier, I 100% guarantee you he knows those light phases...

I second Barbara - as a regular rider that has to be the most balanced story I've seen and also showed what its like from a riders prospective, especially in relation to car doors.
Excellent reporting - possibly a first when it comes to this topic from anybody in the NZ media. Congrats :D

Congratulations TV3 and the Campbell Live for this story about cycling. It stands out as being balanced, thoroughly researched, well presented and great to watch. As Spokesperson for Cycle Action Auckland I work frequently with all media on cycling issues. Seldom do we see the issue presented in such manner - this is tv journalism at its best. I have had many positive responses from a wide range of people I deal with in the community who raised it with me. They found it informative and highly worthwhile. Take a bow for handling a highly topical and contentious issue in such a professional way.
