    Mr Paul Gimblett's (no doubt straight faced) reply...A key reason is that as a no-fault social-insurance scheme,ACC is required to provide appropriate help to anyone injured on the road.
    We can't restrict cover to certain people or vehicles,as a private insurer can.So if the writers motorcycles were both on the road at the same time,and the second bike crashed,ACC would be obliged to assist with any resulting injuries unlike the private insurer,who would decline cover related to the second bike.
    The no-fault nature of ACC,which means assistance depends simply on there being a covered injury,and not the "who,where,how" of accident itself,means injured people can get the right support quickly,thus enhancing their prospects of successful rehabilitation.It's useful to take this into account when comparing ACC cover with that offered by private insurers.


    Is it me?have I missed something here?Am I paying the ACC levy to cover me or my bike now???Or is this NO-FAULT quoting fucker think we're all thick?
    You pay both. You get levies taken off any money you earn to cover yourself. Also off the petrol you consume takes a chunk. And you for your bike through the registration. They get you coming and they get you going. Oh and remember they are not taxes. They are levies. That makes all the difference.

    Heres your chance to make a submission regarding ACC levies

    Every year before ACC sets its levies, we ask for feedback about not only our proposals, but all other aspects of the Scheme. Of note in the motorist account ACC is proposing the following for the 2015/16 levy rates:
    a 40% decrease in the Motor Vehicle levy, paid by motor vehicle owners

    The ACC Board is also proposing other changes, including:

    reducing the petrol levy by 4 cents per litre (from 9.90 cents to 5.90 cents)
    implementing risk rating of the light passenger fleet (cars) based on vehicle safety

    You can also find more detailed information on the proposals within the consultation document on our website www.acc.co.nz/levyconsultation

    Motorcycles
    ACC has developed a fact sheet and infographic explaining how the motorcycle levy is calculated and why the levy rate is not changing (attached). There is an explanation showing if ACC applied the true cost of motorcycle claims the average levy rate would be $1,267 instead of the current average levy rate of $331.

    If you are interested in making a submission you can send your feedback with your contact details (including name, address and contact number) on our proposals, or another aspects of the Scheme, in the followings ways:
    by email to: levyconsultation@acc.co.nz
    by post to: Levy Consultation, ACC, PO Box 242 Wellington, 6140
    through our website: www.acc.co.nz/levyconsultation

    All feedback received will inform our final recommendations to the Minister for ACC.
    The deadline for submission is 5pm 17 June 2014.

    You can make stats say what you want - nothing against off-roading, but while not registered, I'm sure they include motocross and dirt-bike stats in their propagander. Or is it registered bikes only?? And fact that, as a motorcyclist I have not cost ACC a cent in nearly 20 years makes no difference to what I pay. Like any good system, it gets fucked by the officious little beaucratic arseholes running it. AND a record profit to-date

    I know a motorcyclist of over 35 years who has cost ACC in excess of $200k. Thank God we have ACC.

    I know a motorcyclist who got paralysed in a crash. ACC have forked out probably similar money on him as well. ACC buy him wheel chairs and subsidise cars with adapted controls, not to mention the medical expenses and time spent in the spinal specialist hospital.
