In March 2014, I wrote to the Governor of Victoria, The Hon Alex Chernov AC QC, as a Victorian citizen, as a member of the RACV and as Spokesman for the Independent Riders Group.
I asked Governor Chernov to talk to Premier Napthine about his promise to abolish the TAC tax and to ask the RACV directors to change their policy from one of support for the unfair tax, to one in favour of abolishing the tax.
As Governor, he could not assist in abolishing the TAC tax. It may be that he can help us in his role as Patron of the RACV.
In any case more people in power know that the Parliamentary Road Safety Committee, the VACC, the vast majority of Victorians who ride road motorcycles & scooters want this discriminatory tax gone. And they know that Premiers Baillieu and now Napthine both promised, repeatedly and in writing, to rid us of the TAC tax.
There is a state election in November. Go see your MP.
Watch your local media for information on the new electoral boundaries and the candidates you can vote for. Bear in mind the current government has done motorcycle & scooter riders no favours in spite of promises from opposition.
