This thread is an attempt to help us identify all the direct and indirect players including their alleged motives in the Victorian Parliament Road Safety Committee Inquiry into Motorcycle Safety. This is by no means an accurate and final list so feel free to add your opinion, additions and removals. I will update the list as often as I am able to. The list Anti Motorcycle The training industry – Money The safety industry – Money The anti motorcyclists – Hate, envy, jealousy and fear of motorcycles & motorcyclists The TAC – Seen to be doing something, introduce discrimination, uncooperative, money VicRoads – Justify failed speed limit reductions and poor road maintenance, contradicts VicPol and TAC on front numberplates Victoria Police – Failed operations, excessive police numbers, lack of work, intelligence gathering, commandos, harassment, regressive, money The Auditor General - Speed Cameras, Redflex, front number plates, money Department of Infrastructure – Lazy submission, only submitted an old report from 2008 Department of Sustainability & Environment (DSE) - Avenue to introduce carbon tax, access to forests and parks, motorcycle facilities, money Royal Australasian College of Surgeons – Want to reduce their workload Alfred Health - Legislate safety gear, money The ambitious ones – Glory, fame, appointments, money RACV – Insurance payout savings, money The experts – Half of their submissions are about them Citylink – Money Redflex - Money Pro Motorcycle VMC - A solid, clear concise and balanced submission addressing the real issues IRG – ?

Maurice Blackburn Lawyers - SMIDSY, motorcycle awareness Professor Marcus Wigan – A must read, insightful and informative The Ulysses Club – A good submission with some strong points, issue of increased training within the proposed MSCC GLS although asking for a reduction in the learner age. Motorcyclists – Care for motorcycles and motorcyclists, safety and more freedoms Undecided The Liberal Party – Votes, prop up failing industries, revenue, maintain motorcycle levy, money The media - Advertising revenue, money Select Scootas - ? Australian Riders Division – Some good stuff but negated by support for new GLS and Safety Levy VACC - Some good stuff but supports increased training, use it or lose it licensing for people that have not ridden for a while, discriminatory TAC fees for differing attire, looking at changing the TAC no fault system, does not like the cheaper imported motorcycles EDIT: Mods please feel free to add, edit, correct errors or update the list as I am unable to spend much time online.
