(Question No 1552)
Mr Seselja asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 1 May 2007:
(1) How many (a) motorcycles and (b) motor scooters were registered in the ACT each year from 2000 to 2006;
(2) What is the projected rate of registrations for (a) motorcycles and (b) motor scooters each year for the next 5 years;
(3) How many accidents involving (a) motorcycles and (b) motor scooters have occurred each year from 2000 to 2006.
Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
(1) Motorcycles and motor scooters are not recorded separately on the rego.act database, so it is not possible to provide the number of registrations for each category. The total number of motorcycles and motor scooters registered at 31 December are:
2000 = 5,961
2001 = 6,378
2002 = 6,744
2003 = 7,041
2004 = 7,503
2005 = 8,049
2006 = 8,725
(2) Based on an average annual increase of 460 registrations in each of the last six years, the rate of registrations for the next five years is projected to be:
2007 = 9,185
2008 = 9,645
2009 = 10,105
2010 = 10,565
2011 = 11,025
(3) Separate data is not available for motorcycle and motor scooter accidents. The number of accidents involving both motorcycles and motor scooters are:
2000 = 197
2001 = 160
2002 = 186
2003 = 153
2004 = 169
2005 = 191
2006 = 149*
