the ABC just ran a story on the govt and RTA considering enforcing protective clothing for all scooter riders and motorcyclists in NSW, after highlighting the big increase in new riders coming off and having rather bad injuries ( guess which riders? yes, scooters ). they did cut to guy stanford showing his damaged jacket and a quick soundbite but i bet it was edited so we don't know what else guy might have said. also a shot of joe tripodi talking about it. many shots of scooter riders squiding. funnily enough no bikes. i ride both so i am not casting anything on scooter riders here but i see the majority of them in next to no gear. to enforce this I think is a big step backwards. i go ATGATT 99% but on a trip down to my local beach, 5 min away, i dont want to wear leathers, boots and full face helmet for that. I have checked the mcc nsw site and there is no mention of this potential issue. Can anyone shed any light on this?
