To motorcycle & scooter riders who are in the RACV. Please share this. Get it as many riders as you can, any way you can.
INDEPENDENT RIDERS GROUP MEMBER Rod Brown has been keeping an eye on the situation at the RACV. There are five candidates running for election to the RACV Board.
Two are already on the Board. Three are not. These three have pro motorcycle & scooter policies.
They are JOHN PRESLEY, AMANDA STONE & TRENT McCARTHY.
In my opinion, it is your interest as an RACV member and as a motorcycle or scooter rider to vote two of three non Board members on to the RACV Board. You can only vote for two candidates.
The three to vote for are John Presley (What he offers is in an earlier blog. Scroll down.), Amanda Stone (See Below) and Trent McCarthy.
I spoke to John and Amanda at length and I think they are good value.

If elected to the RACV Board we would promote integrated and sustainable transport planning, where the use of road space is maximised for all modes, including bicycles, public transport and motorcycles & scooters.
Motorcycles are an efficient and more sustainable form of motorised transport than the private car and play an important role in reducing congestion, moving more people, and using the road space more effectively. As fuels change into the future, motorcycles will become an even more sustainable form of private transport.
We would advocate for:
· a seat at the RACV table for motorcycles and scooters, consultation on issues relevant to these modes, and access to RACV services, including representation in Royal Auto
· continued focus on safety for cyclists, motorcyclists and scooter users
· recognition of the role these forms of transport play in a more sustainable and efficient transport mix
· ongoing review of regulations surrounding use of road space to better cater for cyclists, scooters and motorcycle users.
