Should drivers who have been convicted of a driving while impaired (DWI) offense be required to use a "Whiskey" plate? A special license plate beginning with the letter "W" that lets law enforcement officers know the driver has a prior DWI offense.

What a fantastic idea. Anyone who has been on the road with motorcycles around will know that indicators are not the easiest thing to pick up especially if the brake is applied as well. No I am not saying they can not be seen but even as a fellow motorcycle rider I struggle at times to see if another bike is turning while the brake light is illuminated. As a fellow rider I am all for this idea and other improvements within the next 5 years to make an activity I I love to do even safer and provide us with more protection.

As both a rider and a member of the SES this hits me. Around Cooma where I live I have seen countless people who get their learner licence and set off on a ride but the problem is a lot of them have never ridden a bike before (this also relates to another scoop I have posted about rider training). As a member of the SES I have been called out to motorcycle incidents where the result is rarely good news for the rider. Whether it be an animal, another vehicle, or no other vehicle I can tell you now that retrieving a corpse is not fun and nothing ever prepares you for it when you come across it. So please if you are a new rider or an experienced rider this is well worth a read.
