    National Transport Commision page for comments on lane splitting (Rule 151A)

    An interesting little read, especially for the all the arguments against Rule 151A.

    There was an article in yesterday's motoring section about it too. Written by that Mike Fitzpatrick dude from the RAC.

    He bagged lane splitting as dangerous but said lane filtering was beneficial to traffic flow and motorcyclist safety.

          am going to be a tad cross if this becomes a &#39;stealth&#39; amendment ..... there&#39;s been little publicity or public debate - wonder how may motorcyclists would be aware of what&#39;s going on outside this forum?

            The submissions have been opened again till the 3rd or 4th. I believe it is so they can make up some positive submissions to try and justify there proposal, i am in touch wuth a lady who has been told she is to collect some data and make a positive submission. She does seem quite logical though and she is trying to understand the reasoning behind the reports that have said it&#39;s safe. Alot of emailing

            The National Transport Commission has dreamt up a new national regulation, which is aimed at banning lane-splitting. The period for public comment has been extended to Feb 3, and so far they have received over 300 submissions against the idea - which may be a record.

            All the details can be found via this web link: http://www.ntc.gov.au/RFCList2004.aspx
            A couple of pointers for those wanting to put in a submission or comment:
            1. It must remain civil - rude/nasty comments achieve nothing and get binned;
            2. It needs to address real concerns and preferably add something constructive to the discussion.
            Okay, here are my views, which have been sent to the folk concerned. Feel free to use all or part of it in your own.

            So keep bloody writing!

              Actually, AMCN magazine has been pushing it on their soapbox for a couple of issues now. That&#39;s where I got the link from. The Ed even goes on a bit of a rant in the latest issue (Vol 55 No 14). Not pushing AMCN as the be-all and end-all, but to give them their dues, they&#39;re usually on the ball w/ current issues relating to "us" bikers.

                Motorcycling Western Australia???? Is this a magazine? I thought he just owned a bike shop? Not the Executive Director of all of us. What&#39;s going on, I don&#39;t understand. Where&#39;s my wages???

                    They have certainly left my comments off their list, so it makes you wonder exactly how many they havent published- trying to artificially play down the public response methinks, dont underestimate these swine, they dont need evidence to perpetrate their evil, look at double demerits, a trial that has proved to be of no value- real evidence, but we still have them.

                        Mine made it on, but any formatting and structure applied to the paragraphs was very conveniently discarded, making it hard to read, and less likely to recieve more than a glance over.

                            After forwarding my message again I got an auto reply saying the correct address should be gdeimos@ntc.gov.au not the com.au as below;


                            01/31/2006 - 12:26:57 AM This message has been incorrectly sent to ntc.com.au due to INCORRECT advertising! It has been forwarded to gdeimos@ntc.gov.au please remove the incorrect address from your address book. ntc.com.au administrator

                            is this correct? if so send all your comments there.

                              ok
                              my second submission [the first seems to have somehow got lost] now made.

                              if there is any shred of common-sense ANYWHERE in the system, rule 151a will be abandoned ...... so why arn&#39;t i more confident of the outcome?
