VICROADS CONTEMPT FOR PIMS 2

VICROADS SHOWS CONTEMPT FOR PIMS BY DENYING VSRA & AMTRA SEATS ON VMAG

Both the Australian Motorcycle Trail Riders Association (AMTRA) and
the Victorian Scooter Riders Association (VSRA) should be on
Victoria's Motorcycle Advisory Group (VMAG) in their own right, as per
the Parliamentary Inquiry into motorcycle & scooter safety (PIMS)
recommendations - December 2012.

That VicRoads' CEO Gary Liddle denied VSRA, and likely AMTRA, places
on VMAG is wrong. In this case, a six-month delay is a refusal to
accept the PIMS recommendation. It demonstrates VicRoads' bias against
motorcycle & scooter riders, contempt for a parliamentary committee
and a disregard for road safety except when it suits their agenda.

A road safety committee comprised of people picked by a road authority
rather than picked for their expertise and the stakeholders they
represent is a liability, not an asset, to road safety.

VicRoads has a duty of care to all road users. VicRoads is subject
to the Victorian Parliament, not the other way round.

The Independent Riders' Group supports VSRA's and AMTRA's right to
have representatives on VMAG in line with the PIMS recommendation.

This important issue will be a major part of the 1st FAIR GO RUN on
March 16, 2013.
