    Heard about this one months ago, from a friend who's employer organisation declined to comment.

    Why is there a need for VP to voice an opinion? The role of the police is supposed to be to enforce laws, not to determine what they should be, and act as a kind of moral authority (Ha!:roll:)

    Prediction:- The TAC has somehow funded this pointless exercise to further their agenda paying those mercenaries masquerading as police in order to trot their message about the dangers of filtering, this may turn out to be the start of a fresh campaign this time concentrating on filtering. The motorcyclists views will be handled haphazardly as is the whole point of this "news" article.

    Good call Smee, but we'll have to wait and see. If it is TAC-instigated, there will be a huge media buy tied to running the story, and the conclusion will have been scripted on Janet Dore's desk.

    I am hoping not, believe me.

    ...the irony is you'll need to split/filter to make it home in time

    unfortunately there are a lot of people out there who believe what they see on channel 9.
    and many of them drive cars.
    very worrying.

    I believe Rob Smith (MA riders division) may be being interviewed for the article. Excellent.

    I'm hearing ya bro, but at this stage any publicity is good publicity applies.

    Any chance to bring the discussion out into the open for public debate is important, it's what is made out of the opportunity that will count.

    Maybe 3AW will pick it up and run with it tomorrow, obviously if we've got dickheads phoning in and failing to make our case then we're back to square one.

    There's a lot riding on this as there is with the bus trials.

    It's not looking good... :(

    A promo just came on for the news headlines for the segment and was
    "Perils of lane spliting caught on camera"

    Has the makings of TAC and VicPol putting in their bit to knock the push for legal filtering on the head...
