Petition Action

Allow motorbikes, type A, A1, A2 and AM vehicles to have coloured headlights

Petition Details

Add an amendment to The Road Vehicles Lighting Regulations 1989, Part 2, 11. Colour of light shown by lamps and reflectors; To allow motorbikes, type A, A1, A2 and AM vehicles to have headlights that are a different colour to other types of road vehicles, so they can be easily identified on the road

Additional Information

Having differently coloured (eg. purple) headlights on a motorbike, type A, A1, A2 and AM vehicles could make them easier to be noticed and identified. Any change that doesn't distract other motorists and increases the chance vulnerable riders should be noticed and identified on the road, should be welcomed and not be illegal. The ideal colour is probably purple as it cant be easily mis-identified due to the fact it isn't used by another road vehicle. This shouldn't be a mandatory change.
