Re: New Zealand Automobile Association is the way to go.
As much as I am loathe to do so I would like to thank Kdoof for posting this article, even if he inadvertantly did so to bolster one of his idiotic arguments. If reading about this sort of twisted dictatorial state sponsered stupidity doesn't help to galvanize the readers of MO against ALL other current and future govenmental actions concerning our sport (actually make that any governmental action concerning anything save government downsizing) then we face a future controlled by and for people who still need mommy to come wipe their behinds when they're done on the potty.
You're off your meds again aren't you. The only things you forgot were travel papers to be checked at county and state borders, weekly registration at the local gestap....er, regulation control and enforcement office, rewards for family members who report violations at home and relocation at state sponsored re-education camps.
I think it's their whole "compulsory" attitude. These people can't do anything of their own accord even as they advocate laws for it. It's the "sheeple" attitude - "Please tell me what to do. I can't do it myself."
Adopt these laws, people! Take action and make it happen. Put the government in charge of letting us know how to keep us safe! These are prime examples of proper motorcycle safety regulations that we can have here. Anyone that opposes these basic safety measures is a criminal.
The Middle East: The Standard For Motorcycle Safety
The increased security vigilance in the holy cities has been a headache for motorcycle drivers used to scooting around town without proper paperwork or helmets.
As of yesterday, officials have already impounded about 350 motorbikes since heightened security operations began earlier this month, according to an officer who didnt want to be named. "Those bikers that were caught riding without helmets can get their bikes back if they bring their helmets," said the officer at the scene.
Riders without proper documents can also recoup their bikes once they get their paperwork in order.
Barbados: Making the proper move to motorcycle safety
All motorcycles over 500 cubic centimetres (ccs) should be banned from Barbados' roads, apart from those used by the police or the military.
Sealy said that motorcycles were covered by the legislation, and those over a certain power and speed had no place on Barbados' roads, since they were designed for highways with greater width and length. "Smaller motorcycles are fine, but it is beyond me why any human being, given the size of the roads in Barbados, and the closeness of our intersections, would want to mount a motorcycle with 1500 ccs. And the only thing you can have in mind is either dying or killing," he said.
This just makes so much sense to me. It goes back to my proven theory that anything over 400cc's are for criminals.
Ban anything over 400cc's to prevent any more action taken against the motorcycle community. This will prove to everyone that we can police ourselves and can put this issue to bed once and for all. No one will ever again mention motorcycle deaths ever again.
