Car drivers are asked to be aware there will be many more motorcycles &
scooters on Victorian roads tomorrow and to drive with extra care near them.
Riders from all over Victoria will head to the marginal electorate of Seymour
on the 1st FAIR GO RUN on Saturday, March 16, 2013. The Hume Highway
is expected to be busy as riders travel to Seymour from Melbourne, Wodonga
and places on the way.
In Wodonga, Road Safety Committee member Bill Tilley MP will see the
bikes safely on their way south on the Hume.
In Melbourne, Shadow Minister for Roads and the TAC Luke Donnellan MP will
see the riders off from Epping.
Local member Cindy McLeish MP and other speakers, will address the assembled
riders in Seymour.
Riders want the government to implement the recommendations of the parliamentary
inquiry into motorcycle & scooter safety before the 2014 state election.
Independent Riders Group spokesman Damien Codognotto OAM said.
"The motorcycle & scooter riders will be travelling well below the speed limit
so we are asking car, truck and bus drivers to please be patient and careful.
Give the bikes their road space."
When in place, the 64 inquiry recommendations will benefit all road users.
