RIGHT ON! THE bmf ‘KNOW YOUR RIGHTS’ GUIDE
The British Motorcyclists Federation, the UK’s most influential rider lobby group, have added a ‘Know Your Rights’ guide to its handy, pocket-sized series of ‘Fast Facts’ cards.
Designed as a quick guide to a rider’s rights, the latest bmf card sets out the procedure that should be followed in various instances from reporting an accident to how to respond to a police stop check. It also explains the procedure that is applied in safety camera offences.
The new card covers personal rights issues, highlighted by the bmf's successful Biker Legal Line service. The ‘Know Your Rights’ card supplements ‘Fast Facts For You’ and ‘Fast Facts For Your Bike’, launched last year as the first in a series of free information cards aimed at clarifying the myriad of regulations facing today’s biker.
The cards tackled questions such as as the correct legal markings for exhaust systems, the current standard for helmets and the current limit for tinted visors, the law regarding personal injury or property damage and the rules applying in the increasingly common practice of police stop checks.
All these questions and more are addressed in the series of Fast Facts cards 1, 2 and 3.
