THE 2168 Community Residents Action Group will not stop until something is done to prevent another tragic motorised push bicycle incident.
The recent news of 14-year-old James Ciappara dying after colliding his motorised push bicycle with cars has saddened community members.
James was riding his motorised push bicycle on Southdown Street, Miller, at 9.15pm last Wednesday when police tried to stop him for not wearing a helmet or using lights. He collided with two cars, suffered serious head injuries and died at Liverpool Hospital.
This incident was the second motorised bicycle accident within three weeks.
Another teenager, 13, also suffered serious head injuries after he collided with a car at Heckenberg on September, 24.
The 2168 Community Residents Action Group have been raising concerns about motorised push bicycles for the past three years.
Group secretary Sharyn Henry said legislation was needed.
"Our concern is that something terrible would happen again," she said.
"It's a safety and noise factor; kids wizz up along the laneways and through the parks in them [motorised push bicycles] with no lights on, they don't wear helmets or obey the road rules."
Liverpool MP Paul Lynch has also raised this concern with Minister for Roads and Ports Duncan Gay.
"I'd support extending registration requirements to include motorised push bicycles," Mr Lynch said.
"Just as people illegally ride unregistered and registered trail bikes they could do the same with motorised bicycles."
