HUNDREDS of motorcyclists from across Slovakia staged a protest ride between Trnava and Bratislava on May 25, to show their disapproval for government plans to reduce speed limits for them from 130 km/h to 90 km/h.
"In Europe, motorbikes travel at 130 km/h. We just want to be allowed to travel at the same speed on the motorways," said protest organiser Peter Fischer.
Director of the regional transport inspectorate in Trnava, Pavol Gabriška, said he could not remember any highway accidents involving motorcycles.
