Further to the email below, we would like
to extend you and your colleagues an invitation to attend the Motorcycle
event on Sunday 12 April at 11am. You can find out further information
about the event via the official invite attached.
Thanks for your email. This event will
be the first of many Travel Happy - Share the Road activations we are proposing
to do around the State. This morning was the first advertising launch with
pledges for safer riding and driving around motorbikes. We welcomed all
Victorians to attend by advertising on Fox FM and on the VicRoads Facebook
page but no specific invitations were sent. Overall, we intend to have
dozens of these events support by ambassadors such as Paul Mercurio.
The specifics of motorcycle filtering
and use of bus lanes is an important topic. We intend to have separate
engagement activities on this linked to the campaign at a later date
as it relates to behavioural change.
For your interest, the next Travel
Happy - Share the Road event with a focus on sharing the road with motorcyclists
is at the Beechworth Bakery in Healesville this Sunday from 11am-3pm and
of course we would love to see you all there! I will also make sure
the IRG know about future activations and appreciate any way you can assist
the campaign by getting involved and making a pledge.
On Thursday before Easter, the Minister
for Roads and Road Safety launched the campaign to the media with the Assistant
Police Commissioner. Below is a copy of this on a YouTube link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tVaeWGafvI&feature=youtu.be
Thanks again for your support of this
behavioural change campaign. I will be in touch shortly regarding the upcoming
events and support of IRG.
