Subject – Proposed Changes to Motorcycle Licensing
Today the MRAQ participated in a media event in conjunction with the Queensland Minster for Main Roads to announce the release tomorrow of a discussion paper on proposals for changes to the motorcycle licensing process.
British police chiefs encourage motorcyclesWhile many riders believe police are the enemy, discriminate against them and harass them, it seems British police actually encourage motorcycling.The UK Council of Police Chiefs website http://www.motorcycleframework.co.uk/ includes a motorcycle framework.........
The Motorcycle Riders' Association of Queensland Inc.(MRAQ)is the official voice of Queensland's road riding motorcycles, off-road motorcycles, scooters and trikes communities. With more than 190,283 motorcycles and scooters now registered in Queensland, it is imperative that these people are being properly considered as a legitimate part of the transport mix.
The MRAQ's primary role is to convey the road safety concerns and suggestions of the road/offroad motorcycles, scooter, trikes riding community to relevant government bodies and work with them to achieve the goal of improving motorcycle, scooter and trike safety. It also provides information from its work back to the riding community in order to facilitate the achievement of its objectives. The MRAQ has been representing Queensland motorcycle and scooter riders at the highest levels since 1982.
The MRAQ's objectives are to:
- Promote road safety
- Promote a better image for motorcycling
- Work for fair and sensible legislation on behalf of all motorcyle enthusiasts
- Participate in charitable and community service activities
MRAQ supports responsible, safe, yet enjoyable riding practices, and encourages on/off road motorcycle, trike and scooter riders to participate in advanced rider training and track days to safely develop their skills and experience safely in a non-public road environment.
