ROAD SAFETY AND breakdown organisation GEM Motoring Assist is urging all motorcyclists to make safety their priority on every ride this summer.
GEM chief executive David Williams MBE said: “The vast majority of motorcyclists are highly skilled and experienced road users who have undergone extensive training to enjoy the privilege of riding a powerful machine on the public road.
“But having this experience is not the same as using it. That’s why we’re calling on motorcyclists to put safety first and reduce their risk when they’re out enjoying a ride this summer.
“Motorcyclists are used to anticipating the actions of other road users – it’s a key part of their training and vital for their safety. So we want to make sure they use their skills, commit to a defensive style of riding on every journey and remember that there are sure to be loved ones waiting for them to come home safe at the end of the day.”
In an attempt to boost safety and mutual respect, GEM has compiled a selection of simple safety tips for motorcyclists and other road users:
For other road users:
In 2013, 331 motorcyclists lost their lives on the UK’s roads, and a further 4,866 sustained life-changing injuries. Studies show that motorcyclists are 38 times more likely to be killed in a road collision than a car occupant.
