Media Omissions Distort the Story

Rider group representatives were left wondering whether their attendance at a Motorcycle and Scooter Safety Summit organized by the Federal Government, held in Canberra on 10th/11th April 2008, was worth the effort as a result of media reporting of a statement put out by Federal Transport Minister Anthony Albanese’s office on Friday.

Police Inability to use their own cameras makes Scapegoats of Motorcyclists

The Victorian Police (almost uniquely of all the World’s Police Forces) seem to be unable to use well tested cameras to photograph the rear of motorcycles and scooters.

Following a sugestion made at VMAC recently, by one of the motorcycle members , Vic Roads have uploaded the Great Ocean Ride DVD onto YouTube.

The GOR DVD was produced as part of a VMAC initiative and funded by the TAC levy. Much of the content in the DVD was included at the direction of the VMAC Motorcycle members. The DVD has been widely distributed as a "give away" and many hundreds were given away in the VMAC Showbag at the recent Melbourne Motorcycle Expo.
