Motorcycling has the potential to get Britain back to work and ease congestion. That’s the message Steve Kenward is sharing with the newly appointed Transport Minister Stephen Hammond today, as they discuss the case for motorcycling.
The Minister will be introduced to the MCI’s Framework Document
, which sets out the place of motorcycling in transport, environment and business policy. This highlights the possibilities that PTWs offer in terms of an affordable form of personal transport, and the contribution their more widespread use could make to reducing congestion. Motorcyclists save an average of 306 hours a year off their commute, which is good for business and for the individuals involved. This is the first meeting between the two and it is hoped the Minister will address the ongoing need to increase access to motorcycle tests; a necessary development in order to facilitate demand.
