Are cars safer in Sydney?

I have been incessantly told how dangerous it is to ride a bike in Sydney, but then, while here in Kuala Lumpur, I see the front page of the New Straits Times that a Malaysian man was murdered while driving in Sydney. I’d think that it is also very dangerous to be in a car in Sydney too. Maybe they will have to insist on better protection for drivers from random murderers like they are putting up fences to protect against the stone throwers.

  1. Yes this was a terrible thing to happen. But I do ride regularly in Sydney and have no real problems. Drivers are still getting used to having a lot more bikes on roads recently. I usually say thanks when they slow down for me. I think Sydney is no worst than most western cities. (my brother in law is from Singapore and he agrees). I feel that here is a bit of nasty racism like everywhere else. This Malaysian mans death has angered and shocked many of us here in Australia.
