Road Safety Report March 16

Road Safety/AMC Report:

State Election 2021

Now that the WA state election is over, we will need to make contact with the possible new Minister for Police and Road safety to make our selves know to them so that we can form a constructive relationship going forward.

We of course will need to wait for our premier to announce his new cabinet.

Bike Fest Dwellingup 2021

We held a set up a booth for MRAWA at Longriders Café on Sunday 14th March for the first of the 2021 Dwellingup Bike fest, this was organised by the Longriders Café. We had a steady run of people approach are booth to enquire about the MRAWA and signed up 4 new members on the day, we also handed out many membership forms, and of course promoted rider safety. I would like to thank our volunteers who helped out on the day.

These type of events are a great way to communicate with the general motorcycle community and we should attend as many of these events as possible.

Riding in Groups video

I am hopeful of getting the go ahead from the Road Safety Commission for my grant application with them to produce a series of videos on the safety and aspects of riding in groups.

Dave Wright

Road Safety Officer MRAWA

Motion to accept: Dave Wright                                  Seconded: Peter Butler                                   Accepted:

Steve Fish met with several other groups regarding existing issues that face the motoring community.

In that meeting it was advocated for a combined effort between all non-government bodies in WA to share knowledge and increase our presence (300,000 sounds a lot better than 1,000 or 30,000 etc.)

The idea is for the group to assist each other with contacts in various government positions and also put itself forward to government departments when they need to ask the opinion of the motoring community so that all parties can be aware of upcoming changes and be called upon to have input into new policies.
