UPDATE: Below is a record of what appeared on YourSAy during the open consultation process from 31 January 2018 to 16 February 2018.
Your feedback and comments on new recommendations to improve safety for motorcyclists will be greatly valued and will contribute to future decisions on SA motorcycle licensing laws.Motorcycle riding is becoming more popular among young people, and tragically the number of young motorcyclists killed or seriously injured, has also increased.
Enhancing the Graduated Licensing System is one of the measures being considered to reduce injuries and deaths of motorcyclists - alongside enforcement, education, vehicle safety and road infrastructure improvements.
Providing a staged process for obtaining a full licence gives beginners the opportunity to gain experience and acquire critical road craft skills under low-risk conditions.
What is being proposed?
The State Government asked the University of Adelaide's Centre for Automotive Safety Research (CASR) to independently review the Graduated Licensing System and make recommendations for SA to better protect learner and novice motorcyclists.
CASR has outlined 13 key recommendations. The full report is available here.
How will your input be used?
A summary of the responses from the community will be available on YourSAy in April (TBC).
We will also publish the summary of responses from the community on the South Australian Government Portal.
