Motorcycle Awareness Month
18th October 2023
It’s Motorcycle Awareness Month and as a lifelong motorcyclist and Patron of the Motorcycle Council of NSW Inc-MCCNSW-#lookoutformotorcycles, I was pleased to join with my parliamentary colleagues Minister for Regional Roads Jenny Aitchison MP, Roy Butler MP, Dr Joe McGirr MP, Gareth Ward, Warren Kirby MP, staff and members of the Motorcycle Council of NSW on the 2023 Parliamentarians' Ride.
The ride might be fun, but the purpose is to highlight the serious matter of motorcyclist safety and that includes motorcyclists being responsible for having the appropriate equipment and riding safely, as well as other road users being aware of the presence of motorbike riders.
Road safety is everyone's responsibility and I joined with the NSW Government in supporting measures that will reduce injury and death on our roads.
