There is a movement going on in Switzerland to have motorcycle riding put officially in the constitution. It sounds pretty strange, but what the motorcycle groups are trying to do is make motorcycle riding a "normalized" form of transportation, guaranteed by the constitution.

The movement comes from a group of illuminated politicians, assisted by the motorcycle lobby groups.

In particular, the text which is being proposed (article 82), states the following:
  • That the free choice of transportation is guaranteed
  • That fluid, free moving, traffic is legislated. Red lights to be synchronized in all cities to make traffic fluid (green wave principle).
  • That motorcycle riding is encouraged as an efficient form of transportation, using up less road space. It will allow motorcycles to slowly overtake vehicles in between lanes when they are stopped, and that PTWPowered Two Wheel - motorcyles, scooters, mopeds are allowed to use bus lanes. Authorities will also make sure that there are sufficient parking spots in cities for motorcycles & scooters.

For this to move on, 100,000 signatures are required by the Swiss citizens, and the file should then be submitted before 7 August 2013. So they still have a way to go, but to see motorcycle riding as part of the constitution is a novel idea. Maybe other countries should pick this up as well.
