The WRAG Janurary 2018
MAG starts the New Year determined to make a difference
The Motorcycle Action Group (MAG), the UK’s leading voice for riders’ rights, is looking forward to driving the agenda for riders’ rights in 2018: here’s how. MAG is gearing up to a new year of activities defending riders’ rights and contributing to the decision-making process at national and local governmental levels.
Selina Lavender, the Chair of MAG, stated that whilst there had been substantial challenges during 2017, MAG’s personnel are refreshed and ready to work just as hard during 2018 as throughout 2017. “We had to respond to some very serious issues last year, not least the moped-enabled crime epidemic and the horrific attacks that went alongside those crimes, but we are strong and we are upbeat about what we can achieve going forward. “We will be meeting with various high-level authorities early in the year to discuss this problem” she continued, “and we are pleased to note that these authorities recognise just how serious this problem has become and that a robust approach to sorting it out is required.”
MAG will continue to engage with Government and Local Authorities wherever a need to protect riders’ rights is identified and will be building on the relationships forged during the past year. The organisation will also look forward to announcing a replacement for Dr Leon Mannings, who stepped down at last year’s Annual Group Conference from his role as Transport Policy Advisor, in due course.
MAG invites riders, dealers, mechanics and manufacturers to join MAG and help create a united voice for the common good of the riding community. Contact MAG at 01926 844 064 or E-mail Central Office
