Boost for rider road safety technology
« on: August 05, 2018, 01:20:27 PM »

A worldwide program to find, encourage, test and develop innovative technology that will improve motorcycle road safety is being launched.

The Motorcycle Technology Evaluation Challenge (MotoTEC) program is being developed by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute with $US400,000 from Australian company Transurban which operates toll roads both here and in the USA.

The day I'm expected to ride an autonomous bike is the day I stop riding. Recent polls have shown the bulk of the current population want nothing to do with them. On the other hand Gen Y and later say bring it on. What a sad world it will be.
I acknowledge hardworking Australians no matter who they are or where they come from. All those who have contributed to this wonderful country deserve an equal share of gratitude for their contributions. To single any group of individuals out for special homage only denigrates the rest of us.
