AS a motorist, I am very shocked that no claims can be made against a motorcyclist in the event of an accident. According to the writer of the letter “Rude shock for motorist” (The Star, Sept 30), he was informed by a police sergeant that in any accident involving a motorcyclist and a bigger vehicle, no claim can be made against the motorcyclist.
It does not seem right because all motorised vehicles including motorcycles are required by law to have a valid insurance coverage in order to be issued with a road tax. What is the purpose of the insurance coverage if no claims can be made?
As it is, there seems to be many reckless motorcyclists on the road these days. They can be seen running the red light and riding against traffic flow. Does this mean that such motorcyclists can behave irresponsibly on the road at the expense of other motorists?
The authorities and insurance companies should clarify this matter.
