Lettters to the Editor, today's Herald Sun (20 Jan) - see 3 letters from riders re Lane Splitting. One was from a scooter rider, lamenting how they can't speed and are regularly being blown of the road. Another compared it with public attitudes to Transit Lanes, Express Lanes at he supermarket etc. And one cited an experience where they were rear ended by a car driver who shunted them in tothe back of anoth car. Safety is certainly a key issue that we are highlighting at the Lane Splitting Congestion Aawreness Ride next Wed here in Melbourne. the 3 letters published aked the public to take a more lateral point of view on the issue... Thankyou to all who have made the effort to register their concerns with the media. For every letter that gets published there are probably 50 others received. To have 3 published is a huge achievement. To aid our case I would like to gather some stats on Rear Enders, so that I can use it when we talk to the media next week at the Congestion Awareness Ride. For the record - I have been rear ended twice in the last 7 years..... Please encourage others to contribute to this poll.
