HELP ME TO SUPPORT THE PARALYMPIC ATHLETES

PARRABUDDY.BLOGSPOT was started to help find a way for “Adaptive / Physically Challenged / Paralympic Cyclists ” to enjoy riding their bikes on the Daily Route of the famous Pro Tour Race Routes such as the “ Giro d’Italia " and the " Tour de France " !


Through lack of support i have been unable to achieve that goal and unless people decide to assist there is little chance that my 19th season will be any more successful !


London 2012 Paralympics was amazing for ALL , not just those participating but those who followed via the Media !


Since 2009 several other Blogs have been created to cover various other subjects !

Below is a guide to their separate purposes :

In the main Parrabuddy is about “Adaptive / Physically Challenged Sport” and Health Issues.


Skippi-cyclist is about personal issues and Road Safety Issues.


SkippyAus is about matters relating to Oz and some personal memories from my life there.


Tourdafarce & Tourdafrance are about matters relating to the Pro Tour , Racers and some personal experiences during my various visits to ride the Pro Tour routes .


Skippy (blogging) is about a variety of issues on the Internet .


NOT ALL postings arrive in their correct area but I will generally try to separate my views on Doping and Sporting Fraud from Road Safety Issues .



Comments ARE WELCOMED since this shows that those reading are interested in the subject matter ! Enjoy comments made to other blogs so wonder why only " anonymous " posts here !

Over the period of these "Blogs" I have had visibility on Twitter as “Skippydetour” and on Facebook as “Skippy Mc Carthy” where Google usually advise postings on the Blogs as they occur .

When any of you visit these Blogs I hope I am able to add value to your day and provide a source of information if not inspiration . Please consider asking your friends and contacts to add their support as many of the Para Athletes are struggling to find the resources to compete in Events at regional Levels let alone National Levels .


You the reader have the possibility to help these Amazing Athletes in your own way and contacting your National Paralympic Internet Site for relevant info is a good start !

EXERCISE Plans on A4 Sheet

EXERCISE Plans on A4 Sheet

W/b Gr8 IF ALL Aussies were Fit & Healthy !

Sadly , not the case ! So many until the Past Month , will have been TOO Busy or Too Lazy to Maintain their Previous Fitness due to their Commitments to Work or Family ?

Exercise is GOOD for the Immune System & so it is Necessary to EDUCATE so many of the Population of the Options available !

AS the most Common Point of Contact , Currently , is the Supermarket , then it would be a Good Idea to catch those in the Queue outside , with an A4 Info Sheet !

This sheet should be showing #WebLinks for exercise programs  & ASK those that have NO Computer Access , to collect a further Sheet from the Store Info Desk !

Each Sheet Should have several Age Groups , ie , Child , Youth , 20-35 , 36-55, 56-70 , 70+ so that ALL AbleBodied could go to a Web Site that corresponds with their Age & Fitness !

People of Disability Should Also be shown as a separate entity , since they will have their OWN Needs !

AS each Age Group will have different levels of Fitness & Sports Interests , it will be necessary to RECRUIT Aussie Champs in a Number of Sports to devise the BEST Exercises to correspond with the NEEDS of those that LACK their Current Fitness levels !

At the Info Desk , there should be a variety of A4 Sheets detailing the Appropriate Exercises to the 1/ Level of Fitness , 2/  Age Group  3/  Appropriate Graphics where No Computer is available !

Surely the Various Supermarkets will COOPERATE , since Exercise creates Appetite , so THEY Benefit !

Even Better would be the Provision of Donation Facilities , so that those needing the additional A4 Sheets can Make a GOLD COIN Donation to the Families of the #MedicsFamiliesLosttoVirus ?

No doubt the likes of #OfficeWorks would donate the Paper NEEDED to create the Ongoing Paper Needs & #SESVolunteers could take care of the #QueueDeliveries ?

TV Stations MISS Opportunity to HELP CYCLIST SAFETY

Not arriving at the Memorial Ride today , meant that i watched the TV Reports , to see HOW they reported the Event !

This RIDE was brought about by the UNTIMELY DEATH/MURDER of Gitta Scheenhouwer , a Dutch Lady , recently moved to Melbourne and about to start work as a Graduate Architect .

My email to a variety of TV Stations follows :

Congrats on your TV Reporters getting out & about so early on Tuesday 28th Aug 2018 , so as to cover the Bike Ride (  https://www.bicyclenetwork.com.au/newsroom/2018/08/14/memorial-in-south-yarra   ) Event !

Whilst that Ride was about the PEOPLE that have been KILLED , when riding a BIKE , MISSED was the opportunity to SOLVE some of the associated Myths , surrounding every day Cycling ?

Those watching TV Footage shown , will have noted that there were a few " Posties " , amongst the many People on their Bikes , in ORDINARY CLOTHING ! YES , there were a few #LycraClad Cyclists , BUT , the majority were EVERYDAY People that use BIKES for TRANSPORT !

Most People are under the impression that People on BIKES , are generally the #LycraLouts , that the #ClickBaitingMedia seek to DENIGRATE , each & Every time that they have an opportunityy to mention the word BIKE !

YES , there are many that choose to ride in Lycra , i ONLY RIDE my Bike in Lycra , BUT , that is MY CHOICE ! Regardless of Clothing , I and other Bike Riders , are HUMAN BEINGS !  Each of us use the BIKE for OUR OWN Purposes , be it Sport , Commuting , OR , to go to the neighbourhood Shops !

With the TOXIC atmosphere CREATED by the #ClickBaiting Minority & those that run off at the mouth in the Media , as they seek to build their #Ratings , it is NO JOY for ANY Age Group or Sex to leave their Abode , knowing that they RISK a visit to A & E , during that Bike Ride , even if it is ONLY around the corner !

WHAT is it about a Person on a BIKE , that even when , the other vehicle is across the road , travelling in the other direction , causes SO MANY Vehicle Drivers to hurl   Comment/Abuse , AND , even objects ! THIS , is not restricted to Oz ! I have seen the same behaviour in Europe , principally in the UK !  Days before the Tour de France , i was visiting in the Manchester region of the UK , and by chance , found myself ridingg with 3 Men , that due to their achievements at Rio2016 , were PRESENTED to the Queeen ! As we rodee the area known as " The Lanes " , we heard several comments cLEARLY ABUSIVE , as well as saw as soft drink bottle pass nearby ! Probably those people were #CouchPotatoes , that were CHEERING as a Cyling Medal was WON by a Man in the GB Uniform ?  BUT it goes even further , when you hear Ladies speaking of the same behaviours !

Whilst the bulk of my riding is with #LycraClad People , THEY have a life outside of Cycling . Many off these People speak of the FEAR for their Young Families !

Most of the Lady Cyclists speak about the FEAR that they have for their Children when using a BIKE !  FAR TOO MANY , rely on their Vehicle , to drive their Child to SCHOOL ! WHEN they ride a Bike , their  concern is for their Family being DISADVANTAGED , if an RTI occurs whilst they indulge in ensuring their Fitness & Health , by taking a Bike Ride on the City Roads !

WHAT is so different about Australian City Roads ?

Nothing !

It is the DRIVERS that Use them !

Not ALL European Drivers are " Angels " , BUT , the Situation in Australia , is so PATHETIC , that it is ALMOST 100% certain , that the only time that they CONCENTRATE & OBEY THE RULES of the ROAD , was when they presented for THEIR DRIVING TEST ! NOBODY PASSES the Driving Test without 100% concentration ? SO , having DEMONSTRATED that Ability , WHY , is it IMPOSSIBLE to do this Each & Every time that they get into a vehicle and behind the Wheel ?

EGO ?

The sense of ENTITLEMENT ?

Every so often , we hear of a CHILD being KILLED in their OWN HOME Premises ! It demonstrates , that even the Family is AT RISK , when a Person gets into that Box on Wheels !  Surely , NOBODY , expects to be able to DRIVE A VHICLE , with LESS than 100% Concentration ?

Road Statistics PROVE OTHERWISE !

Whilst The Road Killed & Seriously Injured Statistics , have been REDUCED over the Decades , through a variety of methods , the RECENT Cycling DEATH Stats have INCREASED Dramatically ! Y/e 30 June 2017 saw 25 Cycling Deaths , BUT , the same period to 30th June 2018 , saw 45 Families with LOST Family Members ! This DRAMATIC INCREASE has passed without very much MEDIA Attention , indeed , even most ProRacers are UNAWARE of this SERIOUS DANGER to their Career and well being !

Cycling Australia are responsible for the Well Being of Most of OUR Professional Cycle Racers , and , as such are a menber of the UCI , based in Aigle , Switzerland . Union Cyclist International are the Governing Body of Cycle Racing of ALL Varieties , and as such has 190+National Cycling Federations attend their Annual Congress during the World Road Race Championships , which will take place this year in Innsbruck , Austria , towards the end of September 2018 .

Distracted Driving is a WORLD WIDE Problem , which could be EASILY Solved , if this petition is CORRECT ... https://www.change.org/p/google-apple-stop-road-deaths-and-injury-from-mobile-phones

As a Minority of ONE , i have visited Aigle on many occasions to raise the #CyclistSafetyIssues , even had @briancooksonobe ( Past President of UCI ),  tell me that they will run a Campaign similar to the " RESPECT " Campaign of FIFA ! May 2014 was when i sar down with him , then i reinforced this at Ponferrado World Congress in Sept. 2014 , then at the Giro d'ITALIA & Tour de FRANCE , each Year since ! This year 70+ Male Racers & 30+ Lady Racers have posed with Placards & the Eire Gillet , demonstrating their Desire for SAFETY , whilst training on the WorldWide roads ! Most of these Photoss can be found on https://www.facebook.com/stayinaliveat1.5 and on https://www.facebook.com/SafeCyclingAustralia . Whilst taking these Photos , i rarely had the opportunity to note ALL the Names of those Racers , so asked the Readers of those webPages to HELP with Naming those appearing in those photos ! So far NOBODY has assisted !

My personal opinion of this mornings ride , is that a HUGE Opportunity was SQUANDERED ! I failed to arrive , as i punctured near my home , so went back to change Bikes !

WHEN in February 2016 , there was an Italian Visitor , Alberto Paulon  , KILLED by #Dooring , nearly 10000+ People on BIKES took to the roads to demonstrate their CONCERN for THEIR WELFARE ! This was a WEEKEND Event , NOT , at an inconvenient time for ALL but those that set aside their OTHER DAILY EVENTS !

Early 2017 , there was the trauma of the Indian Pacific Race , being Terminated , due to the Unlawful KILLING of Mike Hall , who was leading the race , near Canberra ! Within DAYS , on the Sunday , there was a Memorial Ride , involving nigh on 1000 People on BIKES !

IT IS CLEAR that there are Thousands that are WILLING to give up there Valuable Free Time , to mark the Passing of a STRANGER , albeit a member of the Cycling Community ! Every Capital City in Australia , had their Own Gathering that numbered into the Thousands , in manyy Cities 1

Clearly , the ONLY TIME that a Memorial Event , should be called , is at the Weekend When the WHOLE FAMILY are able to attend ?

Even when before Christmas Break 2017 , a Member of the Qatar2016 , Under 23 Cycling Australia Squad , Jason Lowndes , was KILLED by a Distracted driver ( Charges in Progress ) near Bendigo , there were MANY More attending the Funeral at a weekend , than were at the EARLY MORNING RIDE around the course of the National Road Race at Bunninyong ! Unless a person was Staying in Ballarat area , then 0730 of a weekday , was TOO DIFFICULT , certainly for myself coming from the Mornington Peninsula for the day !

London Cyclists have solved the Problem of Cyclist Deaths , by running #DieIN Events https://www.facebook.com/groups/stopkillingcyclists ! This involves mostly Monday Evening Visits to the DEATH SITE , then amongst other Eveents , LYING IN THE STREET  , thus CLosing the area for Minutes ! THIS is done in Cooperation with the Policing Authorities , AND , though Several Prominent Members of the Queen's Household , have been amongst those KILLED , Whilst Riding to their Work Premises , the ANNUAL CYCLIS DEATH TOLL has tumbled ! With this success , brought about by cOPYING the tactics used in the Mid 1970s , by the People of the Netherlands , MORE Cities in Europe are NOW following this path , to HIGHLIGHT the Dangers to People on BIKES in their Localities !

DOES AUSTRALIAN CYCLISTS have to adopt these TACTICS to have the Motoring Public UNDERSTAND ?

HOW HARD is it for the POLICING AUTHORITIES to do their JOB ? This photo shows HOW the Met Police in London , are NOW EDUCATING Vehicle Drivers with the SAFE PASS MAT , used by the West Midlands Police , since Sept. 2016 ,and at the same time Cyclists , willing to under pass a truck , near a junction , using their #ExchangingPlaces Program . I had been calling for this Combo for several years , no doubt , there were others with the same idea ? .


Every State has a LAW , which REQUIRES Vehicles to pass BIKES , WITH THE SAME SPACE THEY GIVE OTHER VEHICLES !  Does ANY Driver pass a Metal Vehicle within a few MilliMetres ?  Yet this is a DAILY Occurence , for the Majority of People on BIKES , wearing Lycra or Even Day to Day Clothes !

ASK People to STOP getting out of Bed in Auto Pilot Mode , THEN , getting into a Vehicle with the SAME ATTITUDE !

DEMAND that they treat EACH Driving occasion , as IF , THEY ARE DOING THEIR DRIVING TEST !

Starting with the Emergency Services , ALL of these People are TRAINED to a HIGHER LEVEL than Jo Public , then , the Armed Forces , then those working in Federal Government Jobs , using a work Vehicle , THEN , continue onto the State & Local Authorities Personnel !

With ALL THESE PEOPLE setting an example , NO MEMBER of the General Public , will have ANY EXCUSE for NOT COMPLYING with the Current Road Rules & Regulations ! FAILING to drive in the manner required to PASS the Driving Test DESERVES the Points & Monetary Penalties that will follow !

Since those Media Personalities that i have seen at the Various Cycling Grand Tours , FAIL to drive in an Exemplery manner whilst in Europe , i doubt that  they remember WHAT Good Driving Skills HELPED them PASS their Driving Test ?

Having been the VICTIM of several RTI s , even received compensation EVENTUALLY , i hope that this article will SAVE at LEAST ONE LIFE !

 Even my OWN ?

Additional Info from a report on the Memorial Ride :



Selected comments made by those attending :

##################

Bicycle Network chief executive Craig Richards comment :

“This has hit the community so hard. Cycling is a fun, healthy activity and to lose a life in such terrible circumstances is horrible,” he said.

“It’s not good enough … Chapel Street really needs to see a change.”

+++++++++++++++++

Mayor of Stonnington Steven Stefanopoulos

"This luxury that we have to park on the High Street is a bygone era and you guys are most important."

+++++++++++++++++

Greens MP Sam Hibbins, the member for Prahan,

"The death of Gitta was a tragedy and I really think it hit hard not just because it happened in our backyard but because it could have been any of us or our loved ones,"

+++++++++++++++++

Martin Wells, 48, Hampton

"I’m gutted at every tragedy. It strikes at the heart every single time because it's so unnecessary. I’m out here every day and one day I don’t want it to be me," Mr Wells said.

"I have a 14-year-old son and he rides every day as well ... It's such a great way to get around but it’s just so unsafe, sadly.

"Today's memorial service is a testament to that."

+++++++++++++++++

Areej Weyman with her husband Steve and son Ramih, 6

“I had a small connection to Gitta. We interviewed her for a job at our architecture firm.

"She had the biggest smile ever, she was bubbly and alive. It was like a shot of caffeine talking to her.

“[Cyclist safety] is very important. We have an office team that cycles as well and so do my children.

People not fit to be on the road should not be there.”

+++++++++++++++++

Ingrid Piepereit, 44, Prahan

"I would avoid Chapel Street at all costs actually, because I think anything built up like this is too dangerous, with all the trams and doors,"

"It’s really sad. It’s just awful. It’s so close to home. "There should be no parked cars and a bike lane instead."

+++++++++++++++++

Glen Allure, Gitta's housemate

“[On Chapel Street] you’ve got the tram, you've got the cars. The cyclists are in and out of the traffic. Getting rid of all these car spots would be perfect and having it free for cyclists. If cars hadn’t been parked here maybe it would have been different."

MEMORIAL RIDES !




Following are photos of many Cycling Clubs , in diverse parts of Australia , marking the passing of a Fellow Cyclist !  Social Media has reported little of the events that led to the demise of Nicholas Ruygrok. 

Any keen Cyclists living in the Larger Cities throughout the World , will know that there are       opportunities to get out on an early morning ride with other like minded enthusiasts .                          Nicholas Ruygrok, pictured with his fiancee 




Earlier visits to Oz has allowed me an opportunity to ride in various Capital Cities on the Eastern Seabord of Oz . It may well be that there are couple of young guys reading this , that will recall an occasion near Marrickville Station when i shouted " DOOR " thus saving a DHCC Member from being spilled by a car door being flung open .  


        A normal DHCC Saturday ride ?







      
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   DHCC mark the passing of Nicholas on Sunday
                                                                                             with a period of contemplation 




Regardless of in which City , the groups that i have joined over the years , there is an effort to maintain a high level of discipline within the group . Generally there have been plenty of hand signals as well as the calls/shouts to alert the pack , to any hazard , either from in front or behind
 the group .                                                                 




  RIP from the Milano Gators Cycling Club, Adelaide.   


 Yes , i have been in some situations in Italy , where the pack was less than satisfactory . Bank Medilianum runs a daily Peloton at the Giro d'Italia , consisting of the Bank's Clients . Many of these Clients , although keen Cyclists appeared to be unused to riding in group formation . These riders arrive several hours before the Racers depart and get to ride with some of the Famous Ancient / Retired Racers of Italy .  Most mornings involve Gianni Motto and the afternoons Francesco Moser and Maurizio Fondriest .
   
 
                                                                                                               Lidcombe Auburn Cycling Club Minute of Silen

When London had a month of bad news for Cyclists , a group called " Stop Killing Cyclists " formed and decided to bring to the notice of the Authorities the lack of facilities/infrastructure , that existed for Cyclists . This past November , the group held their 3rd " Die IN "!  Each of the annual events required hundreds of people lying in the street , thus gaining Media attention . This demonstration of People Power , was an emulation 
of the Dutch Behaviours in the mid 1970s .                  



During the 1970s , there was a problem on
 Dutch Roads that led to the Death of
 FAR TOO MANY CHILDREN . 
After several actions such as the Photo on the right shows , the authorities heard the message   "LOUD and CLEAR " !
These days the country is the leading exponent of " SAFE CYCLING " and is followed closely by Denmark !





Both these countries take " ROAD SAFETY " seriously !  
You will NOT SEE the  situation portrayed in the item

alongside!


















 This pictorial shows that some US States                                                                                           believe that CYCLISTS are PEOPLE that                                                                                              CHOOSE a BIKE as their TRANSPORT so       
 as to ENJOY a Healthy LIFE STYLE .






When in Utrecht Suburbs , you will see signs such as these !  It is telling the Driver , that they are GUESTS on these roads !




Having been hit by a TFL Sub Contractor's  Bus,Tom Kearney on recovery from the Physical Injuries, set out to discover why    Transport for London is ALLOWED to operate    a Transport System , that is so broken that , IF ,  it was ANY Other , would be in the sights of the " H & SE " and before the courts for Multiple  Charges of CORPORATE MANSLAUGHTER!

CONSPIRACY ?



Those that were regular followers of this Blog , must be wondering about the lack of recent input ?

This was brought about by the Traffic Violence visited upon me on the 10th August 2014 ! What was a rear end collision by a White Van Man became not just superficial injuries , but also a legal nightmare !

Having driven away from the Incident scene , it appears that on reflection , the driver arrived at the Polizei station minutes before me . There he located a person that he appears to have good contact with and " Fabricated a tissue of lies " that caused that Polizei Officer to shout at me " You have broken that vehicle , go inside until i come back to you "!

All photos of the " Broken Wing Mirror " show that it was scraped/gouged " by contact with a hard surface such as brickwork . With no apparent difference to a NEW Vehicle in every Polizei Photo , the Polizei Case Summary was sent through the Prosecution Procedures . By mid September , whilst i was in Espana for the Vuelta & Worlds , there was a decision that the driver had no case to answer .

Before going to Spain i had visited a Lawyer , that having received my  instructions , failed to perform their duties to me ,as their client . They did however send a demand for several hundred Euros , typical Lawyer attitude ?

On return to Austria in early October 2014 , i found a demand from the driver's Lawyer in the amount of Eu370 for repacement of the complete Wing Mirror Assembly !  Farcical , considering that my skin nor bibshorts , were able to even scratch that hardened material ?  Additional Lawyer Expenses took the sum to over Eu500 and having notified a defence the matter was set for hearing in Rattenberg Gericht on 10th december 2014 .

Because the original Lawyers had not performed their duty to me  , i made complaint to the Tirol Law Society  !  What a laugh that turned out to be ! Having emailed twice to their Published Email portal , i visited the Office in Innsbruck and discovered that THEIR Spam filter had decided to treat the matter as irrelevant . It was later discovered in February 2015 that " No Action could be Taken " , due to the receiving Officer on downloading the  " Spammed item " , had NOT advised me that , they required the submission to be in the "  National Language "!  This gem i discovered when speaking in English to the President of the Tirol Law society , during that visit to their Offices in February 2015 .  Subsequent delivery of the document in Deutsch elicited a " NO Case to Answer " response . How could they do anything different to the rest of the Legal World ? Lawsyers stealing from each other , would be an actionable matter ?

With the " Stop Killing Cyclist Movement of London " having an event on the 15th November 2014 , i decided to visit with a 2nd Lawyer on 8th November  to give instructions to recover my Costs for the Medical , Equipment & Clothing expenses created by the apparent attempted Murder/Manslaughter Incident of 10th August .  Instead of London i subsequently arrived in Australia and there received advice from the 2nd Lawyers , that MY Insurance policy for 3rd Party Legal Events was NOT BEING HONOURED by Zurich Insurance ! Quelle surprise ! An Insurance Company splitting hairs , as disclosed in February 2015 , when i visited their issuing office in Innsbruck . Seems they wanted to accept premiums for my need to SUE , but not to DEFEND ! ANY Cyclist needs assistance in order to deal with a Cycling Incident , thus 3rd Party Liability Insurance , RIGHT ?  So as a conscientious cyclist i would need help to SUE someone that caused me injury , but i wouldn't NEED HELP to defend myself  ?  Anyone with a white stick would know that the principle NEED would be to defend ?  Of course the Insurance Agency denied that they " Misled " , when collecting 18 months of premiums .

Whilst in Australia , i had need to have the Civil Matter adjourned twice , thanks to the compliance of the Gericht .  On return to Austria i received by post an invitation to appear in the Gericht , to answer CRIMINAL Charges for " Criminal Damage " to the wing mirror !  This hearing on the 19th March resulted in the " Richter " visiting the Car park to view the wing mirror . On return to the Court Room , there was an " Acquittal "?  Whether the Richter was able to determine that this was a " Stitchup " , was not voiced !  In my dealings with him outside the court room on several occasions , this "Intelligent/articulate individual " refuses to even attempt to speak English . Such is his right , but in an Area reliant on the Tourism Industry , i doubt that he is not aware , if not fluent when  using English outside his official duties ?

Having disposed of the Criminal Matter , the Civil Claim was again set down for hearing on the 8th May 2015 .  On visiting my Lawyers on Thursday 7th May to ensure that ALL Photos had FINALLY been obtained , i discovered that the 2 photos of the Wing Mirror , that CLEARLY showed the Scraping/gouging , had still NOT been supplied by the Polizei . My Lawyers then advised the relevant authorities of this NEED ! Seems that this provoked some matters that i only discovered on Friday ?

On arriving at the Gericht on Friday morning , i went to the offices where they receive the emails . I had sent a request by email  the night before , for court dates that did not clash with the times i would be away from Austria with the Giro d'Italia & Tour de France . On obtaining this Email copy , i went down to the Court Room where i showed it to the Richter !  He was not really interested and handed it back as he went into the Court Room to deal with another matter . When he came out , he told me in Deutsch , that my matter was no longer listed and that i should see my Lawyer for information .

When i arrived in their Schwaz Offices , i was advised that the driver's Case had been withdrawn , seemingly because they had become aware that the 2 Photos had been required for the hearing ?  The secretary of my Lawyer advised that they now were seeking recovery of " Costs "?  No doubt that means " Lawyers Costs " , not Defendants Costs , Pain & Suffering and inconveniences associated therewith ?



With this hullaballoo in progress , there were so many occasions when i wanted to post my irritation about the " INJUSTICE " being inflicted !  Even though i had photoed a NEW Vehicle of the Same model , from a similar same viewpoint , so as to demonstrate to the RICHTER , that there was NO DAMAGE , these items were not allowed as " Evidence " during the Criminal Case !  Laws of Evidence?  My RIGHTS as a Human Being were submurged by the " APPARENT BLINDNESS or lack of diligence " , of ALL that viewed the documents and attached photos  that led to EACH of the Court matters !  Even though the Polizei officer , that took the Original Photos acknowledged that he could see the Scraping / Gouging he had to do as instructed by his Superior Officer !  Had my Camera & Cell Phone not been damaged by the impact with the pavement , i could have taken my independent photos , thus NOT relying , on the Polizei to deliver rather than to hide the relevant photos?



ANY of YOU out there , that are the VICTIMS of Traffic Violence , that rely on others to assist YOU , UNLESS the person is KNOWN to you , DO NOT RELY on them to take Witness details or Photos !  I should have known BETTER  with this Incident , since in 2013 , on the 1st day of 100th  Le Tour , i allowed a Danish Lady Tour Guide , to collect details from her " Client Tourists " , that NEVER eventuated , despite several email pleas for cooperation !  As to the BULLYING Gendarmerie in attendence , when i subsequently visited the Nominated Gendarme Office that night , i discovered that they had given the paperwork to another Office . My emails to obtain assistance proved useless . RAI TV personnel had Videoed and then broadcast the Impact , but did not give me a copy to assist in the persuance of a claim against the Driver whom the Gendarmes had subsequently located . Even when in the " Wrong Gendarme Station " they would not provide the Gendarmerie copy of the Driver details , even though that officer had stated he had seen the incident on the French TV ?

As to how far further i have to go to get JUSTICE and reimbursement for damages of Equipment , Clothing & Medical remains to be seen ?

Those of you that wish to assist me with the following Websites , by supplying the translations of the 4 most recent German Placards , use the English as the Guidelines to supply :

French , Polish , Russian , Japanese , Mandarin , Spanish , Portugese  & Italian

With these languages i will be able to create the Placards needed to pass to the Pro Racers to use on thir Social Media .
