http://www.atcouncil.gov.au/documents/atcnrss.aspx http://www.infrastructure.gov.au/roads/safety/national_road_safety_strategy/index.aspx 30 percent of the proposed initial strategies in the draft were about speeding enforcement and control and speed limit reductions/reviews. My quick glance tells me that nothing has changed. The word "training" appears only ONCE in relation to learner motorcyclists. There isn't a single proposal in the document about creating better road users. The whole "safer people" section is about making people more compliant with the road laws. What a travesty. Motorcyclists get a strong mention in the strategy, mostly negative and mostly about climbing fatality rate. It's stated that there was a 17 percent increase in fatalities between 2000 - 2010. This occured while there was an 82 percent increase in motorcycling in the same time period, but there's no recognition ANYWHERE that this represents a real terms reduction. I'm saddened for motorcycling. Pollies and well to dos wont put the real terms picture in mind, only the raw stat and that will fire the claims for greater enforcement and control over motorcycling. There might actually be some road improvements because of the focus, but as sure as anything, we can expect a clamp down on motorcycling based on the one dimensional view of these stats... as if riding utterly within the law at all time will make us safe. If you want to know what lies ahead on our roads, take the time to read the document.
