Minister seeks to improve motorcycling policies


The National Motorcyclists Council (NMC) says it held a ‘positive meeting’ with transport minister Richard Holden, where a wide range of issues were discussed. According to the NMC, Mr Holden agreed that further work on rider licensing, safety and various areas of regulation is needed and accepted that ‘the practice of overlooking or ignoring motorcycling in various policy initiatives deserves reconsideration’.

The NMC outlined how motorcycling represents an important area of transport, mainly focussed around commuting and practical purposes, but with a strong leisure and organised sports contribution.

The benefits of motorcycles as a key step towards decarbonisation were highlighted and the need to not apply a ‘one size fits all’ approach to different road users for phasing out fossil fuelled vehicles, but instead to adopt a multi-technological approach.
