OGS and HGS rebellion of motorcycle riders: Motorcycle users in Istanbul react to OGS and HGS fees on bridges and highways. Motoxic drivers can't make sense that they give the same toll for passenger cars or even trucks
The Motorcycling Couriers Association, the Classic Motor Users Association and the Realist Motor Club reacted to the tolls on bridges and highways with a joint statement. Club representatives who rebelled to pay the same tolls as passenger cars and even trucks launched the “Notice Motorcycles in OGS / HGS” signature campaign.

There is a serious automobile-motorcycle difference due to its wheel.
Despite these differences, we continue to pay the same fee as cars. In order to make necessary arrangements in this regard, we launched the “Notice Motorcycles in OGS / HGS” signature campaign. After the elections, with these collected signatures, we will continue with the motorcycles to make the necessary changes to the Ministry of Transport and even to the parliament.
