I run a bike here in Canada and don't really mind if someone suggests something that might keep me out of a wreck. I'm a pretty defensive driver however and I watch car drivers really closely. There are bike riders who drive their bikes "crazy fast" I guess it's just "thinning of the herd". Good luck to them no matter who's fault the accident was.

Latest comment: 3 comments: 1. No mention that the driver was at fault for pulling out without looking - it his responsibility to see that the path is clear. 2. A speedometer reading of 68kph is not the same as doing that speed - probably less. 3. Locking the rear tyre is indicative of poor riding skills - not speed.

I've been in two accidents on my motorcycle. The first I was rear ended while at a stop light. The second another vehicle entered the round about striking my back tire and axle. How about an add that shows 2 thirds of accidents involving a motorcycle and another vehicle are the fault of the other motorist.

I've pranged my bike, too - and been smacked up the rear (broken leg), but it means nothing to this argument. Most prangs are caused by car drivers, that's why you should slow down, and why 6kph can make such a difference. All it's doing is saying you should slow down to reduce the impact forces. It even shows the car in the wrong. Went right over your head, eh?

Its scare tactics and I'm tired of the constant adds and campaigns portraying motorcyclists as irresponsible speed demons. No shit it's telling you to slow down, and no shit you obey posted speed limits. What I want and what I'm pissed off about is I want an add asking these dangerous distracted drivers to pay attention and share the road with those of us on two wheels. I guess that went right over your head.

It is also worth noting that australia has a huge anti-speeding campaign which for years has focussed on car drivers (especially young males). Its not unreasonable for them to now also include motorcyclists in their ads as well. just because the accidents you've been in weren't your fault doesnt mean it is always the case. And yes, the fault belongs to the car in this case too, but fault isnt the message here, its reducing speed as a way of helping to avoid potential accidents. stop being an over-sensitive little girl. Oh and for the record, there are ads asking dangerous distracted drivers to pay attention to motorcyclists and cyclists.

No, it's not 'scare tactics', nor are riders 'constantly' portrayed riders as 'irresponsible speed demons'. What they are trying to point out, which your insecurity and paranoia will not allow through, is that even a slight increase in speed creates a dramatic increase in impact forces, so be careful with your speed. Unfortunately, such simple reasoning seems too complicated for you to grasp. And no, your feelings about car drivers being made more aware did not go over my head - I ignored it, as it was not the point I, nor the advert, am trying to make. THAT went over your head, and will continue to do so.
