Motorcycling

Injuries to motorcyclists are out of proportion to their presence on our roads.

Motorcyclists are just 1% of total road traffic, but account for 19% of all road-user deaths.

We at One Call want to do our best to ensure that all motorcyclists are safe on the roads, to bring this number down!

  • Motorcyclists are roughly 38 times more likely to be killed in a road traffic accident than car occupants, per mile ridden.
  • In 2013, 331 motorcyclists died and 4,866 were seriously injured in road collisions in Great Britain.
  • Motorcyclist KSIs have fallen since 2008 when 493 motorcyclists were killed and 5,556 were seriously injured on Britain's roads.

Tips for Motorcyclists

  • Anticipate the Actions of Others
  • Make sure to stay alert and observant.
  • Make sure you can slow down and stop if the unexpected happens.
  • Position yourself in the safest and best place to maximise your visibility of potential hazards.
  • Take a 'lifesaver' glance over your shoulder before carrying out manoeuvres, so you know where others are and what they're doing.

Riding Defensively Makes You Less Vulnerable

Tips for Drivers

  • Take longer to look for bikes - junctions are hotspots for accidents so take a little more time to have a look.
  • Keep your distance as it can intimidate less experienced motorcyclists.
  • Check for bikes when changing lanes.
  • Check for bikes when turning.
  • Park safely.
