Thousands of motorcycles and scooters using bicycle lanes risk an $85 fine, without a bicycle/PTW accident having ever been recorded. Would you support an Awareness Ride to highlight this inequity? The issue is - if the fine is based on Safety, then there should be a factual basis for that law to exist - thus, the inequity. MRA is trying to work out where to take this debate. There is a lot of "strong feelings" on the subject, but that's all it seems to be - feelings. Yet, without any accident history - riders continue to be stopped by the police and booked for being in a bicycle lane - even when there isn't a bicycle anywhere in sight. While MRA has not supported going down this path recently, it may be warranted - if there are numbers to support it. But - it would be a disciplined ride, not on bicycle lanes to highlight the issue and draw media attention to our plight. To recap on the MRA position: MRA(Vic), VACC and MA are working closely on this matter. MRA is also going to seek involvement by the Scooter Federation. One idea in train is to hold a Press Conference at dangerous location as cited in the media release.
