Do you want the Government for a backseat driver? 

  • Speed control technology is reality now and is being trialled on cars. Research on motorcycling applications is proceeding.
  • MAG recognises the benefits of Intelligent Transport Systems generally BUT we will not surrender control of our motorcycles.
  • Objections based on technical shortcomings will be overcome by technology.
  • Only the firmly expressed will of the voting public can keep the nightmare of absolute control from becoming reality.
  • Our aim is to ensure that the only hand on the throttle is yours.
  • MAG's position is that simple. However foolproof this technology may become, we simply oppose any and all measures that remove control from the rider.
