New law gives police power confiscate vehicles and suspend licences for up to 10 years and also dish out jail terms
The law comes into effect on October 1st, 2008 and will allow police to confiscate a motor vehicle if the rider is caught doing more than 30mph over the limit.
There will be further penalties imposed including jail sentences of five to ten years as well as suspended motorcycle licences for ten years.
The bill was originally introduced specifically against motorcycles but an amendment was made to include all vehicles.

its been changed to include all vehicles so its equal fighting ground for all

Where's the problem??If you know that doing 30 over the limit will get your vehicle confiscated and you still do it then you're an idiot (or more likely high on drugs in a nicked car).
Looks like the writer's been to the MCN school of journolism.

From what I've read elsewhere there is a problem in parts of the US with inexperienced, untrained, and incompetent riders speeding and trying to stunt and becoming accident statistics. I suppose the authorities have decided rider education hasn't worked and have taken a more drastic approach.
