In reading with interest of some of the threads that are flying around the place and activity in re-butting the Vic authorities in their anti-motorcycle stance here is a link that may be of value in understanding where pressure is coming from. http://www.who.int/roadsafety/news/2010/unrsc_decade_of_action/en/index.html In an earlier thread I mentioned a fact of “Road Safety Vision 2020”. The above is the instrument by which this vision is being propagated. The fight we are facing is global not just Aus. or state by state. We (as in Motorcyclists) are being phased out of existence via this incremental demand on safety. Most of what I have known is through many years of working in journalism. Cheers, and comments.
