Welcome to the MRAQ website
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
