Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 8 Hansard (19 August) . . Page.. 3735..


(1) How many illegal trail bike riders have been (a) charged and (b) cautioned in (i) 2008, (ii) 2009 and (iii) 2010 to date.

(2) Of the riders that have been charged over the periods referred to in part (1), what (a) were they charged with and (b) penalties did they receive.

(3) How many offenders were cautioned or charged on more than one occasion.

(4) Of those riders charged or cautioned over the periods referred to in part (1), in what suburbs did the offences take place.

Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

Disaggregation of data to enable the identification of trail bikes amongst motor vehicle offences is not possible with current systems. The scale of the work involved in reviewing each of many thousand traffic infringement notices issued during 2008, 2009 and 2010 to date is too large to easily undertake. In each case where a motor cycle is identified as being involved in a traffic offence, further investigation of the make and model of motor cycle would be required to identify it as a trail bike. I am unwilling to authorise the significant diversion of resources to extract the information sought.

Roads—accidents

(Question No 1005)

Mr Coe asked the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, upon notice, on 1 July 2010:

(1) How many motor vehicle accidents, which have involved (a) P Plate and (b) L Plate drivers, have been reported during (i) 2008, (ii) 2009 and (iii) 2010 to date.

(2) Of those accidents referred to in part (1), (a) how many (i) P Plate and (ii) L Plate drivers were charged, (b) what were the (i) P Plate and (ii) L Plate drivers charged with and (c) what penalties did the (i) P Plate and (ii) L Plate drivers receive.

Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

Disaggregation of data to enable the identification of P Plate and L Plate drivers amongst motor vehicle accident reports is not possible with current systems. Manual extraction of this information would involve individual review of many thousands of accident reports to retrospectively identify the class of licence held by all parties at the time of the incident, establish who was at fault, and determine the outcome of any ensuing investigation that may have occurred. This work would require a significant diversion of resources, which I am not willing to authorise.

Education—registered training organisations

(Question No 1006)

Mr Coe asked the Minister for Education and Training, upon notice, on 1 July 2010:
