Victoria’s top roads cop lashes out after ‘horror’ day on roads
Victoria’s top roads cop has vented his frustration after a “horror” day on the roads, revealing half of all people killed on motorcycles on Victorian roads this year weren’t legally allowed to ride.
Glenn Weir told 3AW there had been three “really serious” incidents on Victoria’s roads on Tuesday, two of which involved motorcycles.
There is serious concern about the number of people being killed on motorcycles on Victorian roads this year.
“What is really concerning is that half of the people who have been killed on the roads this year riding motorcycles should not have been riding because they didn’t have a licence – half!” he said.
“They’re either disqualified, suspended, or have never had a licence – that is just ridiculous risk-taking behaviour that, as a community, we just cannot tolerate.”
