Came across this in the local.
"Miniature motorsysles will be forced off the road by new
regulations to be introduced by the State Government.
Rules governing so- called "monkey bikes" will be tightened
to make it easier for police to act.
Under existing rules, vehicles on the road with a output
of more then 200 watts must be registered and controlled
by a licensed driver or rider.
Most monkey bikes are more powerfull than 200 watts,
but police have difficulty proving this.
The new rules will be announced by Transport Minister
Peter Batchelor today and were expected to come into
force as early as next week, sources said last night.
Under the new rules, scooters with a power output
of less then 200 watts will be fitted with plates for easy
identification, sources said.
If a bike has no plate, police will assume it is more powerful
than 200 watts. If so, it needs registration and licensing
to be on the road."
It's about time somthign was done to get these dam things off the road.
