New Scooter Regulations in QLD?

Discussion in 'Scooters' started by SpaceManSpiff, Jun 17, 2008.

  1. I heard through our Q-Ride instructor that they (Queensland Transport) are going to be changing some of the rules and regulations in regards to scooter riders as of July 1st.

    Has anyone else heard anything about this? Thoughts.

    Some things that 'may' be changing.

    1. Required safety gear... not sure what it would be though.
    2. Having to wear a fluoro vest so we are uber visible.
    3. No riding a 50cc scooter without a motorcycle license, the death of scooter rental shops all along the coast (but probably a good thing).

    Found a bit more info on another forum, here's a link to a Queensland Transport report.
