no politics...just ridin'

Front Licence Plate Legislation

Well the Victorian Government is at it again - I really don't understand what they hope to acheive by forcing all motorcycles to display front number plates/decals. What, they think that they are missing out on a share of revenue from speeding motorcycles?? Get real fellas!

I believe there are some major flaws with this legislation such as the need to fix these plates to most bikes where there is nowhere to fit one of the proposed decals, which may require drilling somewhere on the front end. Us riders will then have more to worry about should the plate come loose or worse still, in the event of an accident. Most importantly, there is strong advice from industry sources suggesting that it was not technically feasible across the range of motorcycles now on the roads.

Oh, and guess what? The cost of fitting said plates/decals will be borne by the owner of the bike!

I understand that it is only Victorian legislation at this point, but if it is successfully passed then you can rest assured that the other Australian states will follow suite eventually.

Please support the push against the introduction of front plates on motorcycles by signing the online petition initiated by the MRAA here.
