8.9 Motorcycle use
Motorcycles can be more efficient in terms of fuel consumption and mobility, but are a higher risk and require specific guidelines:
- Only authorised or designated persons will use a motorcycle. CARE and the motorcycle user will sign an agreement on motorcycle use.
- A valid motorcycle driving licence is a prerequisite to motorcycle use, and must be carried.
- The rider must wear a helmet. Failure to wear a helmet will result in disciplinary action.
- Only one passenger is permitted as a pillion rider.
- Any accident, major or minor, must be notified in writing to the transport coordinator.
- Riding a motorcycle with even a minor fault is prohibited.
- The toolkit should be carried at all times including an extra spark plug, a rag, piece of sandpaper and a long pin to clean the spark plug.
- Avoid, as much as possible, riding the motorcycle at night and during rain.
- Restrict the speed limit to 50 km/h.
- Do not hang weight from the front handle or at the back of the motorcycle, so as to prevent imbalance of motorcycle or entanglement in the rear wheel.
