Existing laws are adequate to deal with dangerous cycling on shared paths. There is no need for a fake speed limit that will get laughed out of court at the first challenge.
Also, 10 km/h is too slow as joggers will get held up. 20 would be more appropriate for not causing congestion, and simply enforcing the existing rules for giving way on a shared path would be even more appropriate. "The joggers will get held up" Gawd save us. Meanwhile, the ordinary pedestrians, some of who will undoubtedly be aged and/or infirm can take their chances.
When the hoons charging around Southbank @40kph scaring the bejesus out of pedestrians, breaking any number of existing and long standing regulations, including speed,
then they are deserving of at least the $1652 wack.
They are not doing 10 or even 20kph. It is not a laughing matter.
The fines are sliding scale upwards in accordance with how dangerous these clowns on bikes, scooters, e-bikes are.
The considerate ones in majority are keeping to the 10kph, ensuring the safety of all occupants of the shared space.
BTW definitely not a cheaper fine if you drove a car. VicPol now have authority to SHOOT such fools in pedestrian precinct.
Why posters here are abusing the Premier because the Police sworn to protect us, are doing the job we expect of them, just beggars credulity.
