Weav­ing saves lives

ON mo­tor­cy­cles weav­ing in their lanes for safety and vis­i­bil­ity and the an­noy­ance it seems to cause some road users (Let­ters, No­vem­ber 6), what reader Peter Troy is say­ing is ac­cu­rate (Let­ters, No­vem­ber 8). Rid­ers move within their lanes to bet­ter af­ford them­selves vis­i­bil­ity, a buf­fer from haz­ards and to avoid oil in “po­si­tion 2” — the mid­dle of the lane. This is how state­sanc­tioned trainer DECA ex­pects all new rid­ers to op­er­ate. Re­search shows the other driver is at fault in up to 70 per cent of mo­tor­cy­cle crashes with other ve­hi­cles. In many of th­ese crashes, the driver says they didn’t see the mo­tor­cy­cle un­til it was too late (Sorry Mate I Didn’t See You — SMIDSY). Per­haps more ed­u­ca­tion is needed? TO change, re­move, erase, al­ter or re­form any doc­u­ment, law cer­tifi­cates, de­gree or regis­tra­tion, in­clud­ing bi­o­log­i­cal re­al­ity, iden­tity, re­la­tion­ships and na­ture, al­ways has con­se­quences reach­ing far into the fu­ture, af­fect­ing the lives of peo­ple in so­ci­eties near and far, now and later. Ev­ery baby’s birth is in­no­cent, male or fe­male. To lift con­fu­sion about gen­der later on, may it be pos­si­ble for some peo­ple who want or need it to be is­sued with an ex­tra and new cer­tifi­cate for their use in their time? Date, name, sex, par­ents, coun­try and other could be cho­sen but leav­ing the truth­ful record­ing of birth and death with­out mis­rep­re­sen­ta­tion. very se­ri­ous mat­ter of set­ting the wages and con­di­tions of em­ploy­ment of its ded­i­cated staff, the con­se­quences of which di­rectly im­pact also on their de­pen­dants. This is a mat­ter with pro­found reper­cus­sions for a sig­nif­i­cant part of the state work­force, the vast ma­jor­ity of whom per­form func­tions which are ab­so­lutely vi­tal to the rest of us and should be treated with grav­ity. Only our politi­cians would en­ter ne­go­ti­a­tions which should be as­sumed to be in good faith by stip­u­lat­ing be­fore talks have com­menced that they are bound by con­di­tions which they know must be unac­cept­able to the other party.
