Victoria recently released a new strategic action plan for Victoria’s motorcycle and scooter riders. As part of its ongoing commitment to improving rider safety, Victoria already had a significant number and range of motorcycle safety projects currently being developed or delivered. The plan provides a new strategic focus as well as identifying a comprehensive set of actions aimed at improving both road safety and mobility for riders. Key focus areas within the plan include research and evaluation, the road network and environment, rider and pillion passenger safety, and vehicle safety and protective clothing. This paper provides an overview of the key safety actions identified in the plan and some of the projects in motion to address them.
