Just a quick heads-up, from another forum; (quote) TAC survey currently underway--a heads up, full protection gear is stil being pushed Just had a call from the Wallace group doing a survey on behalf of TAC. They are ringing everyone that has a bike registered in Vic. Some of the Q's are typical survey level as in they want a yes or no reply put forward as a scale of 1-10, it's a headfk. Lots of tricky Q's too, such as 'on a scale of 1-10 with 1 being none and 10 being almost guaranteed, what do you think your chances are of getting caught if you ride at 10k over in a 50 zone' with variations of 60 and 100 k zones. [if i answered honestly that i have almost zero chance then thats just going to see more cops on the roads...not always a good thing] Same Q for getting caught if you have been drinking, and again your chances of crashing if you have been drinking. Same set again for drugs. Then they got to the gist of the survey, 'woudl you accept a discount in your tac fees if you agreed to wear full gear every time you rode?' plus variations of that too. 'Would you accept a concession from the govt to buy your head to toe gear?' Of course i would if i was getting compulsory compliance shoved down my throat, i think at this point i let her in on the freedom thing that bikes are all about and how that would fly in the face of it. There was heaps more and a supposed 10 min survey took me over 30 minutes as nearly every Q left me feeling like i was being had, i know what i wanted to answer and in context it would have been fine, but i also know how the answers are going to be translated by those that put the survey out there. Open ended shifty shit is what most of them were [the Q's] She had no doubts as to what i thought about it though. (unquote) From here; http://www.dirtbikeworld.net/forum/showthread.php?t=100628 Ross.
