The CTC was pretty active last time in trying to change the drafts, and did get some very significant improvements. I'd expect the same this time. However, it doesn't write the Code. So, what would a motion achieve that would not already be done?
I would like to see a motion to get the helmet issue discussed, and a firm position (regarding the code) well in advance of any drafts of the code being put out for discussion.
There is a (possibly slight) danger that if this matter is left open, without discussion, and a motion at an AGM that the CTC will be wrong-footed by haste to get a draft approved, and/or a minority of helmet compulsion advocates. There is also the possibility (slight, I agree) of coming to an acceptable compromise with BC as they are now the frontrunners in cycle advocacy.
There is the other side of the coin, that a too tightly worded motion could tie the hands of CTC in negotiations around the draft (and any possible talks with BC).
