Motorcyclists are vulnerable road users and as such we need added protection. If the Government would like to continue to receive the benefits of motorcycling (reduced CO2 emissions and congestion) then we should be allowed to use the bus lanes to protect us from car users.
In passing this legislation the local Council's will be saving lives and thousands of pounds wasted in dealing with the aftermath of a road traffic collision.
we, the undersigned, call upon AGMA and the individual Local Authorities who make up the Greater Manchester City Region to recognise the road safety benefits of allowing Motorcyclists to use bus lanes.
Further, we ask that bus lanes are made open access for motorcyclists at all times.
The Open access bus lanes in Greater Manchester petition to Association of Greater Manchester Authorities was written by Councillor Sean Parker-Perry and is in the category Roads & Transport at GoPetition.
