A senior government spokesman has said that the cabinet agrees with the idea of separating big bikes from other motorcycles.

Riders of powerfulA proposal has come in that suggests in order to lessen road accidents those riding big bikes should be treated differently, reported Daily News.

They quoted Lt Gen Sansern Kaewkamnert as saying that the government agrees with adjusting a 2005 law.

Speaking after a ministerial level meeting in Chumpon he said that in future those applying for licenses who wanted to ride big bikes would have to take a separate test and have a separate license.

Daily News did not report exactly what a “big bike” constitutes, notes Thaivisa.

Thus whether it would refer to, say, 250cc up or perhaps 400cc up was not announced.

Many posters on a recent Thaivisa thread following an accident that killed an 18 year old riding a 650cc bike suggested there should be different rules and regulations for those riding powerful machines as in other countries.
