As part of the Victorian State Government’s Cycling into the Future 2013-23: Victoria’s Cycling Strategy, VicRoads is currently reviewing the
cycling-related Victorian road safety road rules and road safety legislation.
From 1 October Victoria will have new alcohol interlock laws. Anyone whose licence is cancelled for drink-driving will have to fit an alcohol interlock into any vehicle they drive (home car, work car, motorbike) once they are relicensed (with an Interlock condition) after their disqualification ends. The interlock will be installed for a minimum of six months.
The number of motorcycle riders in Victoria has increased around 40 per cent over the last six years. It's easy to understand why.
There is a freedom like no other when you're riding on a motorcycle. Other forms of motorised transport don't immerse you in your surrounds like a motorbike can. What's more, Victoria offers a matchless range of riding experiences, from the Great Ocean Road to the Grampians.
Sometimes life is like a Benny Hill video, fast-paced and frenetic, seeming as though someone's fast-forwarding it. There are things we should do, many things we have to do and plenty we forget to do. We all need more quality time with family and friends, more exercise… the list goes on.
