Wow out of the thousands of people who live in Adelaide we get whiner extreme and one who has no idea of grammar and/or spelling.

Lived in Adelaide for 34 years... for an Australian City was about the best I'd been in... compared to other cities in Australia Air quality was much better, traffic was better, layout was better. Park at one end of Rundle Mall and you can walk to the four corners of the CBD without any issues... try that in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane can't comment on Perth never made it there :)

Can't compare it to Europe but lived in the USA now for several years and no US city gets even close.

There is no pollution in Adelaide. One can stand on a hillside in view for kilometers. COme to Sydney. I've lived here 40 yes each time I return fr holiday I get off plane n state what's that stink. One can stand on a mountain above Sydney suburbs, look out n t ground ocean is gone. Just a fatty cloud hanging below t hill line. Friend stated clouds r low. Nope. That's what we breath. Adelaide RTA should bring in link slips every person has to put their veh on t hoist n gets across worthy test. Checks for leaky exhaust. Oil. Rust brakes. If t fail fails t pink slip test no rego renewal. Adelaidians have it easy 20min driving time t max fr a 2 b. Try driving daily or catching public transport 4 hrs a day to from work u may only have to drive 20 is ea way. Its quicker to drive from moonta to adelaide or victor harbor to Adelaide than Drive fr parramatta to sydney in peak hour which is 20ks distant. in fact peak hour is all day till bout midnight until 4 am then I call it Adelaide peak hr. U guys r a pack of windgers. Bring in t pink slip sth Aus gov dept. Just don't post yur rego papers in n get vehsreregistered sight unseen. Adelaide water is t killer. Nobody outside Adelaide can drink t water without suffering other than that Adelaide is a beautiful relaxing place to live. Appreciate what u have adelaidians. I visited rotarua nz. Its full of sulphur. I'm told it sinks. Couldn't smell a thing. Arrived in Sydney coughed all t way home instant asthma attack. Only thing good bout Sydney is employment. This x adelaidian has never been in unemployment even worked a bit after retirement age. One thing Adelaide gave me was good education

I have decided in August last year to sell my car and ride my bike, take bus and walk to work. I am deeply worried about my and others' health through air pollution at bus stops. Observing busses standing with running motors on Curry Street, and barely ably to breathe in while waiting for busses that are old and stinking. I believe there's no need to add figures of air pollution by Diesel fumes. I am annoyed how Adelaide advertises their (1,2?) electric busses, while hundreds of old, often lacking in service pollute our city and it's population. I am very able to afford a car however, riding my bike feels I'm doing something positive- even though highly dangerous and a risky undertaking in this city. I have used a bike all over Europe last year and longer ago in Asia and I am appalled about the bike lanes. I am a careful rider but I would like our Mayer to try to ride from Tranmere to the city once and tell me how safe he felt when bike lanes suddenly disappear, cars park and he has to overtake them, and all major roads do not have lanes. I feel I am contributing to this city but this city is failing me and others.
