N/A | National Saskatchewan Canada Motorcycle Safety Inquiry heads off massive CTP rise

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' at netrider.net.au started by robsalvv, Feb 10, 2014.

  1. It seems like it will be a long time before motorcycling is seen as a legitimate form of transport with a bonafide transport policy that includes a safety component... the world is still very much looking at PTW's as a safety issue.

    Saskatchewan Canada just finished an inquiry into motorcycle safety. It wasn't as far reaching as Victoria's recent inquiry as it was driven by their accident compensation provider and seems to have been in response to massive premium rises.

    The inquiry seems to have capped the CTP rises to 15% increases.

    Along the way though, mandatory this and mandatory that was discussed - including approval for mandatory boots and 3/4 helmets, and a few daft nanny state rippers like no night time riding for the learner riders and hi viz learner plates.

    The tone of the review is probably not a suprise given that it was driven by the accident insurer. For something that took a year, it only produced 38 pages which I think is telling.

    Anyway, for those wanting to have a look at another slice of the political sociosafety motorcycle landscape, head over to:

    And for the apparent reaction from RAGE (Rider Against Government Exploitation) check out: http://cjme.com/story/motorcycle-group-reacts-sgi-rule-suggestions/248458

  2. Is it that magic number again, 38? This time number of pages, but still there...
    I wonder what sort of conspiracy is there...
