Remove Right Hand Sidecar Ban

Comment 5th July 2010

It is irrational that right-hand sidecars are banned on motorcycles registered since the mid-1980's when left-hand drive cars are not.  It seems discriminatory and has no safety or health implications.

Sidecar riders are a minority.  The law effectively blocks imports of (e.g.) un-modified Russian outfits and others from almost every other country in the world.  Driven sidecars are a particular problem in this respect.

I suggest this quirky and pointless rule be revoked.

Why does this matter?

A) to enable more people to use this traditionally safe and ecologically sound mode of transport

B) to remedy a clear piece of discrimination

c) because the law is excessive, irrational and restrictive beyond any reason
