http://www.parliament.vic.gov.au/im...safety/Submissions/44-67/65_RACV_20092011.pdf Well, right off the bat RACV falls flat on it's face. I'm a member and I have a motorbike - they say they have 2000 members with bikes - they aren't counting me. How do they know who has a bike... I think that's just a shoddy long bow they've drawn to give them some cred in the RSC. "It is well established that motorcyclists are consistently overrepresented in the Victorian crash statistics and with an increasing uptake of motorcycles, it is difficult to foresee a change in these trends unless action is taken to improve the safety of motorcycling." <sigh> Mofo's, we've halved the fatality rate! That's a stunning result! Motorcycling is safer than ever. This is just more blame the rider kind of thinking... doesn't bode well for the tenor of the submission. OMG, RACV, massive fail in stats and mathematic comprehension. If the overall road toll was reducing and motorcycling kept apace and remained at 13 - 14% of this for the five years... then surely the motorcycling fatality rate was reducing too? Massive fail. And here's another crowd quoting the percentage as some self evident case that something must be done. How can these people be so dense? Flaming muppets. Any increase of any road user on the roads results in an increase in risk profile. Cars increased by 23% in the last decade... where's the bleating about that?? What a crock. ...I see that the RACV is totally behind the GLS changes... despite most of the changes aimed at reducing riding exposure... oh, I see what they've done there. MUPPETS!! How dare they call to drop the cross subsidy in the TAC charge when it's motorists that represent one of the greatest hazards to riders?!? And especially when they're getting the reduced crash benefit from our levy treated black spot roads?!? Blood boiling now. cnuts. So much more to comment on, so little cool to be able to do it. I'm truly disapointed in the RACV submission. It's abysmal and fails to seize an opportunity to partner up to work towards improved road safety for all. Sooo disappointed.
