Taxed to Death

Motorcycles help ease congestion in cities, use less fuel and require fewer parking space, produce fewer emissions and cause less road wear than other vehicles. Despite this, motorcycle regulation and treatment by the law is harsh.

Liberal Democrats Senator David Leyonhjelm is an avid motorcyclist, he gets from A to B on his BMW S1000R. He understands the inequitable treatment of motorcyclists, unlike most politicians and bureaucrats. Senator Leyonhjelm is working to amend the National Road Safety Strategy so it reflects respect for motorcyclists.
