559 This is an incident I witnessed (as a pedestrian) but was not involved in.

A car attempted to back out of angle parking space between the bus stop on the Parade near shops/ Medway street and backed into a car travelling past the Medway street intersection, travelling North. Both were at low speeds due to the amount of traffic.

After the accident, the car travelling north attempted to stop to talk to reversing driver but decided to just stop in the traffic flow (but as far left as she could) and put hazard lights on. This meant that traffic behind (including at least 3 cyclists) was required to pull into the opposite Yu traffic lane to pass at this busy street.

510 - Me and my three-year-old on the bike, heading on Adelaide Rd. towards the city
- car turned right from stoke street onto Adelaide Rd
- another car shot passed (well over 50k) us and turned left towards us when he saw the other car half blocking the road
- missed us by a few centimetres
- caught up afterwards: guy wore a neck collar, couldn't turn his head, had his passenger window completely blocked, three kids in the back seat, used abusive language
