    I am injured and was thinking of towing a few of the bunch behind my vespa for a bit of a change.

    Does anyone know if this is legal in Victoria ? illegal ? cops turn a blind eye ?

    cheers

    Definitely illegal. Drafting a vehicle for more than 200m, and holding on to a moving vehicle.

    I have noticed this a few times on the Beach rd mid week, on each occasion the single rider was following closely behind the scooter at a 40-50kph pace. Like the peleton ride when there is no group to follow, expect it gets the legs trained to the race pace, is it legal- no idea.

    Drafting a vehicle for more than 200m??!

    Isnt a bicycle classed as a vehicle when it comes to road rules? Therefore any peleton/pack of bikes on an open road that continues for more than 200m is illegal? Or am I misinterpreting what you are trying to say?
