so says this alarmist article from the herald/age http://www.theage.com.au/articles/2008/01/14/1200159310265.html?s_rid=smh:top5 Victoria's road toll is now double what is was this time last year after a motorcycle crash in central Melbourne last night killed two people. Twelve people have died on the state's roads this year compared to six at the same time last year. Now this is on top of a thread saying "disaster trip to victoria - I can't blow through stop signs so noone should visit" and a whole pile of other stuff doing us no favours at all. So people have had a go at me in the past for presenting figures about how the majority of bike incidents are the fault of the rider - now we have things like a rider ends up in a roundabout! We'll be lucky to have licenses to lose if you don't own a registered bike in a few years I reckon!
