These cagers don't think about ANYTHING when they drive other than "oh what nice music I'm listening to". They are unattentive and dangerously stupid not to mention that they contribute more higly to congestion in the cities and pollution , both of which are supposed to be getting cut down.
I say screw making the bike test harder , make the car test harder. They are in charge of machnies weighing about 5 times as much as my bike out there , it's time they started acting like it.
Car drivers should have to ride a motorcycle at least once before they can pass. an hour in heavy traffic should be a minimum and they must filter at least once. If they can't do that , it shows they don't know what bikers go through (what causes rider fatague , basic bike controls) which would not only benefit bikers but also themselves (rain , paint and drain covers are dangerous when wet) and teach them the meaning of speed (which few drivers seem to know about). If they can't ride something 1/5th of the size of a car , why should they get to drive a car? You've got to work your way up.
This will not only have the affect of increasing safety on the roads but also make people more inclined to ride which is less polluting. There would be fewer traffic jams and fewer deaths of pedestrians since bikes are more manoverable than care.
If car drivers are ok to do that , I would be quite happy to sit 3 tests.
But we know that's never gonna happen , don't we?
