We want cars banned??? 90% of us drive and own cars too. Where did you get that from?
The difference between motorcyclists and some others are we do not have such strong opinions about vehicles and guessing attitudes which we are not involved with, or make up how vehicles we do not have experience of operating or have driven alongside behave.
For instance not that many of us drive articulated lorries so we do not tell the world how good or bad those drivers are or how they operate their machinery as most of us do not understand the workings, capabilities or limitations or dangers of those machines.
We do operate motorcycles AND cars so we feel we do know something about that subject.
Car drivers hurtle by their droves in speed limited roadworks where people are in danger of being killed so dont preach on here about most bike riders speeding, most car drivers ignore dangers to other people as on motorways the majority will speed in a speed restricted area if there arent police or a camera.
In 30mph zones you are far more likely to find cars speeding than bikes, these are identified as areas which kill people outside of the offending vehicle.
We have ALL broken the law? I think most human beings will have broken a law, with or without knowing it, but that is hardly a very scientific statement.
You say car drivers do not try and kill people, well in one sense you may be correct, but this judge's statement was actually incorrect, even the smallest of 'normal' cars weigh in at over 750KG, the average car is over 1 tonne, larger ones 2 tonnes every car driver who exceeds 30mph, if they strike a pedestrian at 45mph will most probably kill them, due to the hunk of metal they are hurling down the road. Nearly every driver knows this so if they exceed that limit they know the consequences.
On a road any car or larger vehicle driver that pulls out in front of someone just to try and save time and lets face it they knowingly do it, risks killing or maiming someone, they know what the consequences can be.
This isnt just pushing in at a checkout or something similar, these ignorant actions have consequences to other people for the rest of their lives.
Currently this is at the rate of over 100,000 per year in the UK. 100,000 so waken up to a real problem of society.
People pushing and bullying in cars, ignoring laws and endangering over 100,000 people every year, excluding the driver and passengers.
Would you like to reply with the statistics of how many people motorcyclists injure every year excluding the rider and passenger?
Do you see the problem??
Get on a small motorbike and ride around for a weekend amongst traffic and see what you 'law abiding' wonderful people will do to you, then reply.
