Compulsory Registration for Bicycles in Australia

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

For too long the call to have compulsory registration of bicycles has fallen on deaf ears.

Governments have explained that the enormous cost of a brand new, global first database of bicycles would make the concept unviable. Governments have explained that bicycles have no VIN or engine number and that every bicycle now in Australia or imported in the future would have be retro-fitted with a world first identification system.

The result would be that the cost of the rego system would blow out by tens of millions that would be spread across the entire rego system. As rego costs are based loosely on vehicle weight, estimates are that bicycles would incur a $5 annual fee while 4 cylinder registration would rise by $50 and 8 cylinder vehicles by $80.

We the undersigned recognise that we will be forced to pay more rego, but demand that bicycle registration be implemented. It is worth paying the extra money for bicycles to have a small number plate that we will never notice. This almost invisible number plate will then magically enable all drivers to pass all riders safely, never get annoyed when having to use the brake to slow down and will enable us to respect and accept all bicycle riders.
