Default Re: RSA motorcycle survey

Yes the survey is flawed, and clearly designed by people who know nothing about motorcycling. Sure, the RSA don't expect much of a response so don't bother with a proper survey, they just cover their asses and tick the 'survey' box, job done.

A (much) larger than expected response to this survey would get attention. Then they might take the survey more seriously in the future, especially if follow up questions were asked at a higher level about the methodology and 'results'.

Doing nothing, staying in the background, and whinging about things amoungst ourselves is not measured or recognised. The result is that we are ignored and totally misrepresented as a group.

Engaging as much as possible gives us more visibility and credibility.

Default Re: RSA motorcycle survey - March 2019 edition.

Dutifully tick-boxed my way through the survey, that unsurprisingly seemed to have been created by compilers with very little practical knowledge of motorcycling matters.

At the end was asked for feedback, so added feedback:

Aspiring motorists should gain invaluable practical road sense experience by progressing from passing a bicycle riding proficiency test, followed by a motorcycling proficiency test, before qualifying for a provisional car licence.

The experience of cycling/motorcycling teaches greater awareness of road conditions, whilst also promoting a more considerate attitude towards other vulnerable road users.

Just as newly qualified motorcyclists are limited to smaller engined, low powered motorcycles, so should newly qualified car drivers be limited to smaller engined, low powered cars.

The dangerous distraction of mobile phone use whilst driving should be emphasised throughout the responsible road user education process.
