Were the motorcycles involved in the Norlane hit & run registered? Were the operators licenced? Or were they unriders who have nothing to do with road riders?
From the police media unit report the average reader could form the opinion that these were irresponsible, dangerous road riders. This vilifies of a whole class of road user, the vast majority of who are responsible, law-abiding citizens who pay their road taxes.
Victoria's 326,000 plus licence holders are NOT unriders. It behoves the Victoria Police Media Unit to make the public aware of the difference. Not to do so is negative to road safety.
