    at least they note that improving the roads will account for saving the most lives, followed by driver behavior. I just hope that they don't "improve" the roads by adding speed cameras

      • The average age of Australian motorcyclists is around 40;
      • Motorcyclists aged between 22 and 40 are the most commonly involved in road crashes;
      • Motorcyclists are around 29 times more likely to be killed than operators of other vehicles travelling the same distance;
      • In 2003 188 motorcyclists lost their lives in road crashes throughout Australia;
      • 91% of motorcyclists killed in 2003 were males;
      • One in eight were 21 years old or younger; nearly six out of ten were between 22 and 40 years of age, whereas only one in four were over the age of 41 years;
      • Hazardous road conditions were a contributing factor in nearly one out of every four reported single vehicle motorcycle crashes; and
      • Four out of ten reported motorcycle crashes did not involve any other vehicles.
      So 6 out of 10 crashes involve another vehicle..... ban the other vehicles they are too dangerous.
      Feed 'em to the pigs, Errol....
