Advice and Information for Motorcyclists

Motorcycles make up only 1% of our county’s traffic but riders and pillion passengers account for around 22% of those killed and seriously injured in crashes. Protection in the event of a crash is limited as the rider is often thrown from the vehicle. Somerset Road Safety promotes safe, responsible riding and supports a number of initiatives aimed at reducing a rider’s exposure to risk and lessening their likelihood of being involved in a crash. The team includes dedicated motorcyclists who are able to consider the issues that riders face and who aim to devise solutions that will meet the needs of Somerset riders.
