MTA counted 338 pass­ing mo­tor­bike and scooter rid­ers, from six Welling­ton lo­ca­tions with heavy traf­fic flow, at times rang­ing from 7.30am to 6pm. All pass­ing mo­tor­bikes and scoot­ers were counted; en­gine rat­ing and/or model type were not clas­si­fied.

MTA graded the rid­ers ac­cord­ing to cat­e­gories on ACC’s scoot­er­sur­ web­site, which is part of a rider safety cam­paign run­ning since May 2009.

Of those pass­ing MTA’s sur­vey staff, 171 (51 per cent) rid­ers fell into ACC’s ‘shocker’ cat­e­gory, fail­ing one or more of the cri­te­ria on the web­site.

Only 167 rid­ers (49 per cent) got a ‘pretty good’ or above.
