The so called HART survey in HEALESVILLE- riders needed to speak to journos URGENT

Discussion in 'Research, Studies, and Data' at netrider.net.au started by smee, Nov 21, 2011.

  1. If anyone was pulled over and would like to have a journo speak to them about what happened over the weekend can they pm me their contact details and I will pass them on. Confidentiality is assured on my behalf but you will have to let the journo's know if you want to remain anonymous. Also mention the fact that it is affecting tourism as the constant harrassment of riders over things like fender eliminators etc are forcing riders to other areas.

  7. As I said on the other thread, this was not HART. It was an initiative run by Roadsafe and Yarra Ranges Council.

  9. As a 'past event', it is not listed on the YR website and I don't know that Roadsafe keep much on their website at the best of times!

  11. Whoever it was why were the police corralling bikes for a survey by non police dudes?

  12. i am guessing the Police were there as they have the powers to intercept eg to direct the bikes off the road, and the Yarra Ranges and Roadsafe would not.

  19. I don't know what agreement the Council and police would have had but if there was a requirement for roadusers to be directed off the road then it would be a function of the Police.

    Did anyone actually bother to ask who was conducting the survey? what it was for ?
    You could have always said ....no !
