    'Towards Zero' - What? Zero idiocy in road rules and legislation? A complete pipe dream, just like having a road toll of zero, it will never happen.

    Idiot politicians trying to justify their meaningless existences yet again.

    Inexperienced riders will come to rely on their abs brake systems and instead of being ready to take evasive action, or worst case scenario, perform the Superman leap (yes I have done that one too), they will always grab a handful of brake and plow into the accident that is unfolding in slow motion in front of them. In the case when an idiot props in front of you, how are you going to lock the rear and put the bike into a flat slide? I did that once and stopped short of the moron's door. What am I going to do with ABS?

    This research has a few faults. For example, Thais all ride step throughs and they don't use the front brake because the tiny little tyre locks immediately, but it does identify the issue, that being avoidance or lack there of.

    If you read that research paper it has some funny bits. I like this one.
    "Or perhaps the explanation why Thai riders are better at maintaining control during evasive action is more Darwinian: perhaps riders who don’t develop effective braking skills are quickly eliminated from the traffic mix."
