What happened?
Riding down The Terrace a car coming up the Terrace did a U-Turn in front of me using Shell Lane to perform a wide, one-motion arch. Rather than giving way in the mouth of Shell Lane the car accelerated onto The Terrace as I was crossing the entrance to Shell Lane. I was forced to turn hard into the oncoming lane (lucky there was no one coming traffic) to avoid getting it. While doing this I braced to be hit and in my mind still find it hard to believe I was able to avoid this. It was still light (4:30pm) But I was using both rear and front light and had a bright jacket on

What happened?
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.

Pedestrian
Date of incident
What happened?
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.

Bicycle
Date of incident
What happened?
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.

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 .

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.

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.

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.

What happened?
Approaching Campbell Rd from Onehunga Mall, moved to the centre of the lane to go straight ahead at the roundabout to Cornwall Park. Car squeezes past me and does a left hook into Campbell Rd. Apparently it was my fault for not indicating and riding in the middle of the road. Apart from the fact that I was legally "taking the lane" and that you are not meant to signal when going straight at a roundabout, only at the exit. I advised her to read the road code.
