Cops: Motorbikes need front ID
Police are pushing for compulsory front identification on motorbikes to further crack down on speeding.
The force has made the submission to the state government's parliamentary inquiry into motorcycle safety.
Police figures show half of all motorcycles caught speeding through speed cameras can't be identified and escape a fine.
Deputy commissioner Kieran Walshe says people are flouting the law.

JR you blithering idiot, filtering between stationary cars is safer for motorcyclists than waiting in traffic for a moron like you on their phone to run up the back of them. There are numerous groups pushing to legalise safe filtering practice. Front number plates won't save anyone. Driver education might, but then you lot prove time and time again just how unbelievably stupid you areCS Friday 21 October, 2011 - 9:32 AM
Safety issues my ar58, you want to speed and you do only now you are going to get pinged for it as you should, I am sick to death of seeing these idiots thinking they are 14 and bullet proof speeding and racing each other at every bloody opportunity they get. There is no safety issue with a plate so cut the crap!Cheryl Thursday 20 October, 2011 - 2:47 PM
Blah blah blah...frontal identification...safety...blah blah. What a load of rot, RFID wont stop inattentive drivers from crashing into motorcycles, the number 1 cause of motorcycle carnage. Stop clutching at straws, riders know the risks and accept them, it's time the rest of you came into the real world.Scapegoat Thursday 20 October, 2011 - 10:04 AM
I don't ride a motorbike, but I can't see any reason to insist on number plates on the front of bikes. Photographs can be taken from the rear. Are we that hung up about someone getting away with something? Road safety is important, but we are getting hysterical.Lukew Tuesday 18 October, 2011 - 11:06 PM
i bought a motorbike to stop being pinged by revenue cameras and paying tolls..garry Tuesday 18 October, 2011 - 9:22 PM
From Page 66 of the VicRoads submission to the Inquiry:
In March 2009, the Standing Committee on Transport endorsed the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) as the agency to lead the national development of a technology-based solution for identifying motorcycles. In undertaking this role TMR commissioned a consultancy to examine Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technologies and digital speed camera equipment to see how well RFID technology met the required performance criteria.
The examination concluded that RFID is not a practical solution to complement existing speed enforcement practices for the identification of motorcycles, and is unlikely to be for the forseeable future and that new speed cameras that can target speeding motorcycles from the front and identify them from their rear plates are being trialled in Australia.
I was present at the meeting of the Victorian Motorcycle Advisory Council where the fact that Frontal ID and RFID was rejected as it flatly DOES NOT WORK.Tony Ellis - Tuesday 18 October, 2011 - 1:49 PM
