Two days in a row with motorcyclists making the headlines on SMH for the wrong reasons. http://m.smh.com.au/nsw/motorcyclist-fighting-for-life-after-collision-20101021-16uir.html Firstly I hope for a full recovery for this rider and anybody involved and best wishes for the family and friends of yesterdays rider fatality. My question though is are motorcyclists becoming the next road users to gain an unrepresentative level of media interest? We saw a few years back a P plater in the news every day which garnered support for new restrictions on P platers. I hope that this does not lead to new laws against motorcyclists, but instead raises awareness. There are many crashes everyday and if the media wanted they could probably publish stories that make blue commodore drivers seem like the worst drivers in the world. However the only outcome of this media attention I can see is more worry from our mothers. Thoughts anybody?
