Motorcycles are extremely common on our roads these days and they are fast becoming one of the most common forms of transportation but sadly they are also the one mode of transport that is likely to be involved in a serious road traffic accident.
It has been estimated that 75% of all motorcycle accidents are the result of a collision with another vehicle and 65% of this 75% is due to the fact that the other vehicle failed to see the motorbike and crossed its path.
Out of all the road users a motorcycle rider is one of the most vulnerable, one of the reasons for this is because of defects in the road surface such as damage to the surface, mud, oil and other spillages; any of these could cause a motorcycle rider to fall from their bike. Also a motorcycle user only has their helmet to protect them against a fall or a crash; they have no outside protection that you get with a car.
A motorcycle rider is 45 times more likely to be killed in a road accident than a car driver and the most common personal injury for a motorcycle rider to sustain is a head injury.
All road users have a duty of care to themselves and each other. A motorcycle rider has a responsibility to take extra care when overtaking and at junctions as well as ensuring that they observe the speed limit and other road users have a duty of care towards motorcycle users in the sense that they need to make sure they thoroughly check for them at junctions before pulling out and ensuring that they have a good sense of a motorcyclists presence on the road.
