Petition to ban two-stroke motor kits for bicycles

Petition in relation to the availability, sale and fitment of two-stroke petrol motors and accessories to pedal bicycles and tricycles.

To the President and Members of the Legislative Council of the Parliament of Western Australia in Parliament assembled.

We the undersigned residents of Western Australia are opposed to the sale and fitment of two-stroke petrol motors with or without adaptor kits being fitted to bicycles and tricycles in Western Australia.  Such bicycles are noisy, polluting and inherently unsafe and dangerous to the operator, other cyclists and pedestrians.  They are not legal to ride on public roads, bicycle and pedestrians shared paths and footpaths.

Your petitioners therefore respectfully request the Legislative Council review the legality of sale of these two-stroke motor kits, and ban their sale, fitment and use in Western Australia.

The forms are below. Print them out, get (lots of) signatures, and then send the filled out petition to BTA, 2, Delhi Street, West Perth
