233 A young teenager - looked 13-14? on his manual scooter rode down Wellesley St hill full speed and rode into the oncoming bus lane to do a jump trick onto the crowded footpath. The oncoming bus was lucky to slow down and stop as it had stopped at a bus stop. The teenager's friends then followed on their scooters down the hill on the footpath cheering the teenager on. The bus driver gave a stern look to the teenager but no action was taken on preventing the kid to do it again. -36.851007141377, 174.7644051893 Pedestrian

400 The date of this incident is 25 April 2017; I couldn't type this date into the box above. (amended)

I was walking along the path signed as Adderstone Walkway, through the Adderstone Reserve. A young man on a mountain bike came around a curve towards me, quite fast. I stood my ground, and there was no room on the path for him to pass, so he had to swerve off the path to avoid hitting me. He was verbally aggressive towards me when I told him I didn't think this was a shared path.

I contacted Palmerston North City Council, and was told that this path is considered by Council to be a shared pathway, along with the others which make up the Turitea walkway through the suburbs and patches of bush in this area. I looked at the Road Code on the New Zealand Transport Authority website, and found that cyclists are instructed not to ride on footpaths, unless it is signed as a shared cycle/walking path. There is nothing on the Adderstone Walkway to indicate that it is a shared pathway. It seems ridiculous to me that these tracks would be designated shared pathways. Most of them are inaccessible or impractical for cycling simply because there are lots of stairs. The Adderstone Walkway is accessible to bikes, but doesn't seem suitable to share with walkers; it's not wide enough, it's winding, and the surface is gravel.

The wooden sign at the Pacific Drive end of Adderstone Reserve has a couple of stickers on it, one indicating no motorcycles, and one indicating no horses. The stickers are in shallow square recesses in the sign, and there are also about three more of these recesses on the sign; it looks like there were more stickers on the sign in the past, but some have been removed. The "no motorcycles" one has also been partly peeled off. This makes me wonder if there was a "no bicycles" sign on there at some point.

I got the impression the people at my local Council offices might just be confused about what is a shared pathway and what isn't, and didn't want to deal with my queries. When I replied to their initial email with the concerns above, I got no reply.
-40.38926281351, 175.6439777 Pedestrian
302 Waiting to cross at pedestrian crossing at the bottom of Chilka St, 2x cars sped southbound through the crossing (much faster than the 30kpm limit in this area), ignoring the fact that I was waiting there with two small children. I put my hand out to wave so that a car would notice that we were waiting and the driver slammed on her brakes, almost sliding over the intersection. This is a really common occurrence - the crossing needs to be moved further north or road design needs changing so that drivers go slower/the crossing is noticed more by drivers. -41.322244981844, 174.7752338733 Pedestrian
369 This time and date is approximate. A scooter travelling in straight line in middle of footpath, most pedestrians were moving to the side to let him pass, but an elderly women didn't see him and stumbled to get out of his way. The scooter rider did also try to avoid hitting her, but she was startled and could have fallen. -41.313376355769, 174.77964727641 Pedestrian

450 Started crossing road at tactile tiles from South to North when car came around corner (turning left from SH1 northbound lane) so had to step back. Cars seem to go fast around this blind corner so it is difficult as a pedestrian to cross. -40.766525313402, 175.14797536964 Pedestrian

454 I was on a bike, crossing Customhouse Quay & Jervois Quay from the waterfront to Waring Taylor St. I was crossing during a pedestrian phase. I had crossed Customhouse Quay and was in the middle about to cross Jervois Quay (they are on a single crossing light). A large 4wd vehicle driving north on Jervois Quay ran through the red light. I saw the vehicle coming through the red light and stayed in the middle zone rather than continuing to cross Jervois Quay. The driver saw me as he was already crossing the intersection, and stopped suddenly in the middle of the intersection. If I had continued cycling, he probably would have hit me (head on to his vehicle, on the side of my bike). He gave me an apologetic wave. He was driving a large grey 4wd ute, with a distinctive number plate made up only of letters. I was too shaken to take note of the number plate. -41.282560074946, 174.77835400324 Bicycle Other (please add information in the textarea below)

215 Incident at the lights where a car ran a red arrow and cut me off. Car was travelling North along the one way st of Cumberland St and was turning right into St Andrew St. There are lights at this intersection to stop cars for cyclists but cars more often than not ignore it and cut the cyclists off. A very dangerous intersection. This intersection and the way the cars ignore their red arrow will either kill or seriously injust a cyclist. -45.872492963187, 170.50790544475 Bicycle Vehicle pulls out or across cyclist

291 Bus driver of 35 bus was leaving Courtney Place, and heading to turn off to Elizabeth Street via Kent Terrace. He left Courtney Place from the right lane (as less traffic than the left lane - I assume so he could speed through the yellow lights at the last minute). He then immediately proceeded to cross two of the 3 lanes over to 14 Kent Terrace, where I was biking in the lane, nearest the parked cars. Without looking he continued to move across to the lane closest to the parked cars, wedging me between them and the side of the bus - he was so close that there was around 10 cm space between my bike and the side of his bus. It was only for my taking evasive braking action that I was not killed. No professional driver would drive with such a poor level of skill and lack of capability, unless deliberately wishing to apply malice to other road users. -41.294631313949, 174.7840625 Bicycle Vehicle pulls out or across cyclist

425 Both my son and I were riding our bikes single file as we approached traffic lights. We were in the straight ahead lane. There are also left and right turning lanes. A car suddenly came alongside us and gradually veered towards us into the straight ahead lane which forced us to move aside for it into the left turning lane. It gave us both a fright, even though it unfolded quite slowly because the traffic lights were red. On the other side of the intersection is a pinch point due to parked cars so bikes need to be able to stay in the straight ahead lane or they will be endangered when the road narrows. -45.858638645364, 170.51238923224 Bicycle Other (please add information in the textarea below)

274 This is part of the official southbound cycle route (avoiding the motor way) and it's a terrible spot. Riding south, it's a two lane road. The right hand lane turns into a turning only lane into South Road. Locals know this and pick their lane early, visitors are totally surprised and flabbergasted: and act accordingly. As a cyclist, riding on the left of the left hand lane in order to meet expectations to be on the left means a relatively dangerous crossing maneuver to end up in the turning lane.
Today, because traffic was heavy, I slipped into the turning lane a little earlier than usual, approx. where indicated and in the last few tens of meters before the turn was overtaken on the left and right simultaneously. Needless to say, that is scary.

I don't know why motor vehicle drivers are in such a hurry to not have a few seconds to give a cyclist a bit of room.

This intersection needs some attention, especially because it's part of the official way out of town for bikes.

347 This morning at 7:08 a silver sedan cut me off at speed when I was just starting to descend Brooklyn hill road. They drove straight ahead down Owhiro road to Brooklyn, cutting me off and missing me by centimetres. I was wearing a bright orange day pack with very bright flashing lights rear and front. The road was wet and slippery and I heard the car coming from behind at speed. I think the brief moment I stopped pedalling probably saved me from being hit by them as they crossed in front of me, at an estimated speed of 60-70 kmh . -41.302762771161, 174.76427489872 Bicycle Problematic pass (usually too close)

379 Coming uphill from Eglinton Road, my intention is to turn right into Stafford St. This intersection is on the near crest of a hill and Eglington Road has no road markings along most of its length. For this intersection, single white lines are provided.
Today (and many other mornings, but Mondays appear to be worse): I am indicating right for about 40m before the intersection. Two motorists choose to overtake in the middle of the intersection, across the white lines. This is problematic because they take my right of way in the worst possible way (from behind!), but they also cannot see oncoming traffic very well.

This is a dangerous intersection, for lack of visibility, steep grade of road, high speeds, and cars parked nearby.

411 Car drove straight at me as I waited to turn right in the turning lane from John Street into Tasman street. Car did not even try to deviate back into its lane. I had to physically jump out of the way. Due to the roadworks on Wallace street and the coned section from Hutchinson road cars leave the section heading toward the Adelaide road traffic lights without allowance for the turning lane. -41.307175981427, 174.77633823226 Bicycle Person drove (or cycled) at cyclist head on
