No kidding. Take a look at the tips for motorcycle drivers, and the tips for drivers of all other types of vehicles. The latter is titled "tips for vehicle drivers".Spike said:Yep, all we are is targets to be knocked down, or bulls-eye's to hit. :thumbup to ICBC for propagating the stereotype that motorcycles are novelties.
Uh....anybody remember how many points for a motorcycle in Deathrace 2000?Suzuki Rider said:
I partially agree with you... The level of bombardment is quite high. But everyone remembers a great ad. If ICBC had come up with a good ad campaign (something like the ad with people walking down the street with someone behind them going "come on, gotta go, gotta go, gotta go..." and tailgating), people would talk about it, think about it, and remember it. I agree, it's a small step. But so is putting BCCOM's "LOOK" sticker on the back of your car. Every little bit helps.Chumly said:Because there is so much media bombardment, from all sources all the time that ICBC’s input is essentially ineffectual, in fact it’s worse than that, as the money should go towards very cheap or free annual lessons on defensive riding.
I'll just say that the claim above is a gross oversimplification of my earlier comments in another thread. I believe the word I used was "most" accidents (not "all"). I don't think it's a naive statement, either.Correct me if I am wrong, but you are the same guy who claimed you can avoid all motorcycle accidents with the right skills; a naive idealization similar to expecting car drivers to significantly improve their motorcycle awareness skills.
