Petition
A petition has been organized in Belgium, available on the internet, that is against several new laws being discussed by the politicians. The internet Lapetition Open link in a new window is against:
  • The mandatory 27 x 18 cm (10.6 x 7 inch) license plate
  • The mandatory protective clothing
  • Kids under 3 years old no longer allowed on a motorcycle (as passenger) and older than 8 for motorcycles bigger than 125cc
  • Lane splitting only allowed on the two left most lanes, max speed 50 kph, and never more than 20 kph than the rest of the traffic
  • Car forced to use daylight running lights (DRLDaytime Running Lights - having your car lights on during the day.)
  • A better maintenance of the roads.

Our fellow motorcycle riders in Belgium can be lucky that they are allowed to lane split, but as someone who regularly passes through Belgium, I can attest to the fact that roads are in deplorable condition, up to the point that they are at times dangerous for motorcycle riders, even the motorways.

You too can sign the petition, though it's in French/Dutch. Click here to access the petition Open link in a new window.
