I don't follow your logic. You think a law that may effect riders'
legal standing and reduce compensation payouts is a great idea when
any small benefit gained from hi viz clothing, over hard-wired
headlights, is being gained voluntarily?
Front number plates have no road safety benefit once you consider the
negatives of machines no designed to display them. FNPs are a grab for
cash and enabling legislation so vehicles, eventually all vehicles,
can be tracked. The devices have already been tested on government
cars in Victoria.
Victoria Police were quoted in the Sunday Herald Sun C2010 saying that
they wanted front ID on motorcycles & scooters in the form of an
electronic tag for "intelligence gathering purposes".
Your reference to "the straight and narrow" implies that a lot of us are not on the straight and narrow. I find that mildly insulting.
As I said. I do not follow your logic.
