Changes to motorcycle laws
The MRAQ wishes to advise all motorcyclists of the upcoming changes to the laws on Lane Filtering, Vehicle Control and Helmets as contained in the attached link.
The association has been been working on having these laws revised for a considerable time and it is pleasing to get a response that represents common sense.
It must be noted that these changes have not yet been enacted and that the current laws still remain until such time as they are.
We thank all of those that have supported the push for these changes and look forward to an ongoing effort to represent the rights of riders.

Motorcyclists require frequent lane movements to adjust to changing traffic conditions. For those who prefer two wheels over four, know where a vehicle’s blind spots are to avoid riding in them. And drivers, make sure you only enter the lane when it is safe to do so. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNQEoiVp_lU

At the G20 meeting, world leaders have called for improved safety for motorcycle riders by getting more riders on the roads. This mockumentary news report has an important safety message behind it. Research has shown that having more riders on the roads increases the awareness and visibility of riders by motor vehicle drivers. This reduces accidents and improves rider safety. This video by Maurice Blackburn Lawyers is part of their Stop SMIDSY campaign. Sorry Mate I Didn't See You (SMIDSY) are words no rider should hear. Thanks to the team at Gozer Studios for producing this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bo39C3Vlm4
