Is LAMS in QLD coming?

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' started by warnzie, Sep 5, 2008.

  1. Has anyone heard whether LAMS is going to be introduced in QLD or a date/time period?

  2. Will not be for a very long time now, they only just re-introduced the 250cc limit, it will be a long time before they see the error of their ways, it is the queensland government FGS.
  3. NO

  4. Confirmed by MRAQ.


    MRAQ President Adrian Toscano said that his organisation supports the
    move by the Tasmanian Government.

    "LAMS provides a wide range of motorcycle options to novice riders of
    all shapes and sizes while removing inappropriate machines"
    Mr Toscano

    LAMS has been introduced as a measure to fulfill one of the objectives
    of the Tasmanian Motorcycle Safety Strategy, which seeks to ensure that
    riders develop the best possible skills.

    Mr Toscano said that the Queensland Government was well behind most
    other states when it came to improving the safety of riders.

    "The first step to improve the safety of all riders is to develop a strategy
    with stakeholders, outline the issues involved and prioritise initiatives.
    Here in Queensland we don't have a motorcycle safety strategy and our
    Government appears to have a distinct lack of commitment towards
    introducing genuine, evidence-based motorcycle safety initiatives"
    He said.
