ID/Link Date of incident What happened? Location Type Situation
313 Car taking a right turn into drive, waited for oncoming traffic then pulled in-front of myself, 4 year old on bike and dog. Slammed hand on bonnet and driver looked shocked that I hadn’t let them pull in!

For clarity we were at walking pace on the pavement. No further action taken as pointless but attitudes need to change in Tauranga!

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.

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
284 No provision of safe crossing, waited 7 minutes for a gap in traffic to cross with a buggy and 2 kids

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

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.
-45.884274965455, 170.48839505435 Bicycle Problematic pass (usually too close)
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

220 Pedestrian walked down centre of cycleway making no effort to walk to the pedstrian footpath on hutt road, i was heading south as was the pedestrian so had her back to me. I kept left of her but slowed just in case she moved towards the footpath. A cyclist heading north which she saw made her quickly move into my line so I had to take evasive action to move around her right, directly inline with the northbound cyclist. He skidded past and I got very clise to her as anymore to the right we would have collided. Pedestrian blocked the view and took most of the focus from the other cyclists as she was unpredictable in what she would do. Myself and the other cyclist stopped and looked back to make all was ok then carried on. -41.261323513932, 174.7886882 Bicycle Other (please add information in the textarea below)
237 Driver fails to give way to me at roundabout, and then a couple of hundred later starts intimidating me with his horn, wanting to overtake through a pinch point on a zebra crossing.


Elderly driver of White 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe seems to not be familiar with how to give way at a roundabout, nor how to safely overtake cyclists without intimidation over a zebra crossing.

Lots of nice hand gestures as he passed - he did seem very angry.

I think he took exception to me asserting my right of way over the roundabout, and I assume then expected me to stop so he could overtake? Puzzling, aggressive and unskilled driving.

Suggestion to reduce likelihood of incident: some kind of warning sign about strong wind, and a suggestion to get off and walk in strong wind?

447 Context: The Parade road has the following road/cycle path/parking layout: main road, followed by street parking line, cycling line, footpath (also driveway to properties at the road)
