Transport hell: Move to copy scooter-mad Italy
FOR the first time motorcycle riders have been praised by a federal minister and a federal government report for helping make our cities nicer places to live in.
And in part this is because Transport Minister Anthony Albanese took a trip to Italy.
Australia's 700,000 motorbike and scooter riders were saluted in the Government's State of Australian Cities Report which reviewed the condition of our 18 biggest urban areas.
were credited with producing lower emissions than car drivers and of
taking up less space on congested roads and parking areas.
