    The Road safety needs to do more education to these motorcycle riders, not car drivers, motorcyclists! Do more adverts and signage, etc, Roadside accident bikes, do not condemn car drivers for their bad riding habits by putting down rumble strips, speed bumps and speed cameras which the latter will cost money to operate that the government does not have and want to save!

      All the education in the world is not going to change the mindset of these out of control people on the roads. I’ll say it again , they’re incapable of learning and laws don’t apply to them.
      And if you truly believe that it’s only the motor bike riders then you’re not paying attention. The lawless and unruly bike riders make up a very specific group. Do they suddenly become sane drivers when they graduate to a car ? Not by a long shot.
      Please trade your steering wheel for a set of handlebars for a month or two (and make sure it includes wet weather too) and then get back to me how sensible and safe you think the car and truck drivers are.
