With the election coming up BCCOM needs your input. We will put together a maximum of 8 questions that will go to every candidate in BC then their answers will be posted on the website. Please keep the questions short and focused.

RUM Bike?

Dear Sir and/or Madam,

Once elected will you IMMEDIATELY remove the RUM designation from motorcycle licensing and insurance scrutiny, provided that they meet only the bare minumum of DOT devices afforded other vehicles that are deemed safe to operate on our roadways?

Secondly, will you regard that any new, used, rebuilt and self built motorcylce that is currently available for purchase anywhere on this planet will be granted MOTORCYCLE status EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY. Being subject to only these clauses.

a) Only rebuilt and self built vehicles are subject to MUST HAVE safety inspections.
b) Any motorcycle that is sold, manufactured, and approved for highway use already in any other province or developed country, has DOT equalivalent or better designation and/ or the minimum BASIC requirements will not endure additional scrutiny in licensing and insurance matters.

A succession of YES answers would prove favourable in your election bid.

- transferrable plates
- no tax on buying/selling used bikes (collecting it once should be enough)

Insurance rates for motorcycles in this province are crazy. Thoughts?

Motorcycles should be free to use all HOV lanes (if they currently can't ride in some). Thoughts?

Toll bridge rates should not apply to motorcycles. Discuss.

Would you support a fleet rate for multiple vehicles, why is there not a insurance requirement on the driver instead of the vehicle and just a plate requirement on the vehicle? This would be cheaper for those of us who use a truck and a bike

If tourism is such a big industry in BC, what are you doing to promote motorcycle touring in the province for both on and off road riders.

I would like to know why motorcyclists are forced to pay for parking, unlike the civilized world.
I would like to know why little or no enforcement is carried out in intersections, where deaths occur. Why are they hiding in the backs of campers,etc. with radar guns, instead?

Revenue, it's all about revenue. Cops hiding behind trees, bikes paying for parking. Money.

Money!!

How many times can we cast a vote for transferable bike plates, I`d vote all day. Kettle Valley rail bed open to all responsible people. Motorcycles included.
If a dirt bike or custom street bike was inspected and had all saftey equipment it should be plateable. With a transferasble plate!

Transferable insurance

Definately transferable insurance would be cool. As a family, my wife and I own and license four vehicles, her Land Cruiser, my GMC and our bikes, we have to pay to insure all four yet we can only drive any two at one time, ..makes no sense.

The operator/driver should be insured and the vehicle/motorcycle should be plated. This insane double dipping by ICBC must stop. Such BS!! The ICBC CEO's and upper management earn ridiculous salaries!!! Stop stealing from us and get a real job where you actualling have to work for a living.

Motorcycles should be allowed freedom of movement and parking in all scenarios. This would help pormote their use and therefore decrease the reliance on larger vehicles. This is both logical and a win for the "green" environment.

Rant over for now, ..I could go on....

Transferable Plates

Add a few bucks to the policy for each bike it, and the plate, covers.

I support more traffic enforcement, and the hiring of specific Traffic Enforcement officers ( a la VPD) as usually in the case of motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians, we have the most to lose if someone decides to drive aggressively, distracted, fast, through an intersection, etc. knowing there are no repercussions. Fines would more than pay to hire these officers. I have no problem with cops hiding out behind signs etc. with a radar gun. Speeding is a personal choice.

Only 1 in 4 traffic camera infractions is ever cited. Seeing as these are the most dangerous spots for all involved, why not prosecute all infractions? To me this is like letting three out of four assaults go unpunished because the government doesn't want to be seen as "mean".
