The Facts

Motorcyclists represent a large proportion of road casualties in relation to their numbers. They make up only around 1% of road traffic but suffer around 20% of deaths and serious injuries. The statistic that one in five deaths on the road is now a motorcyclist is sobering. SourcePage 26 of The Government Motorcycle Strategy
