It is reported in todays Herald Sun that the Motorcycle Advisory Group has been replaced by "the government appointed Motorcycle Expert Advisory Panel" which was to meet for the first time today. Purported to be made up of 7 riders who are to address the large number of motorcyclist fatalities thus fur this year and to address the unspent funds ($22.8M) from the motorcycle safety levy. Can I ask the questions: 1. What will this group be able to achieve that could not be achieved by the previous group? 2. Will they actually define what funding is to be spent on? 3. Will this expenditure from the motorcycle safety levy be "visible" (readily identified as motorcycle safety funding resourced), "explained" (a detailed business case for why this expenditure is required on this matter and what WLL be achieved rather than what is HOPED to be achieved and "up to date" (so that at any time any interested party can obtain detailed un-redacted information in a timely manner)? 4. Will ALL expenditure be followed up as to the success of the venture/program and this be widely and publicly reported - warts and all, rather than not followed up at all, hidden because of failure or conveniently forgotten about for the same reason? So the 'Panel" is made up of 7 riders but then needs to meet with TAC, VicPol representatives and the minister, to me, no doubt to be told by the minister, TAC and VicPol, where the motorcycle safety levy funding will be spent.
