Hi, while riding my bicycle to work on Mt Smart Rd the morning of 21/06/2012 I crossed the road shoulder markings to ride around a parked car. The road markings appear to be newly painted and raised which caused my front and rear wheels to lose traction. I was lucky enough not to fall which had that happened, could have been extremely dangerous due to the heavy morning traffic. I don't think the markings need to be applied that thick, it causes a dangerous hazard for cyclists in wet conditions. Thanks Darrin
