Hello everyone,

I am emailing this to all of you in the hope that perhaps some of you would be willing to join RAMP - The Riders and Motorists Party. (A registered NSW Political Party.)

RAMP has the ideology of having our own voice in the Upper House of the NSW Parliament to directly address the concerns of motorcyclists and other road users.

Major issues which our representative would be fighting for include:

  1. Fight the introduction of unnecessary and restrictive legislation (global harmonisation and the end of permissable vehicle modifications
  2. Cost of registration and Greenslip insurance
  3. Encourage driver education
  4. Find ways of returning revenue (esp fuel) to roads.
  5. Safety issues - especially the issue of dangerous roadside "furniture" (such as Wire Rope Fences...)
  6. Road infrastructure and transport planning - esp with the looming Sydney Olympics and the debacle that was experienced for the recent Easter Show...
  7. Parking issues......................
If you are interested please email me and I will deliver an application form and some info to you.

RAMP is currently having a membership drive to increase membership because the State Govt is trying to de-register as many of the small independent parties as they can before next years elections. We need new members who are ENROLLED VOTERS and who are willing to fill-out a State Electoral Office form stating that they have become a member of RAMP and who are prepared to (perhaps) be audited by the Electoral Office to confirm your status as a member of the party.

The membership fee for joining RAMP is $5 which will cover your membership for 1998 and 1999. This money will go to supporting RAMPs election campaign.

We only have a couple of weeks left to get our membership numbers up. (Originally we only had until the end of July - we have a short extension due to a number of new members submitting Electoral Office forms that were invalid due to changes of address and/or other "discrepancies".
