Anger at 'biker-friendly' guardrails delay
Motorcyclists have attacked a European technical committee for delaying the adoption of a standard for ‘biker-friendly’ guardrails (Surveyor 18/06/09).
The European Committee for Standardisation’s technical committee on road equipment did not consider a draft standard at its annual meeting in Berlin because too many comments were received, according to the Federation of European Motorcylists Associations (FEMA).
Aline Delhaye, general secretary of FEMA, said: “I believe that some participants of the committee forget the reality behind the objective. The truth is that motorcyclists are being killed sliding on our roads.”
