The Melbourne Age ran a story on the spike in road fatalities today, March 1, 2016. Soon after 4 pm, Radio 3AW interviewed a VMC representative on the spike and the Monash University academic who wants to BAN motorcycles.
ABC Radio 774 reported in the 5 pm news that two motorcyclists had been seriously injured in separate crashes this afternoon. It sounds like these were not single vehicle crashes. Both riders were taken to the Alfred Hospital.
