The Brumby government's idealistic road traffic plan has already failed, evebn before it has been launched. The proposals publish in the the Age last month failed to address any concerns or needs for motorcyclists/scooter riders.
Motor Scooters in particular play a major role in the urban transport system and the government needs to do much more to assist in their safe usage of the road infrastructure.
Small motorcyclists should be able to share the the bus/bicycle lanes where appropriate.
Where is the MRA on this issue? Where is the city Council's policy development? And why had the news papers not taken up this issue?
Unless the government can take into consideration all modes of transport the new road use will only be half baked notion, whilst giving an impression of doing something isbeing doomed to fail.
