Suffolk police raise awareness of motorcycle safety

It is encouraging that Suffolk police are raising awareness of motorcycle road safety following the death of three more riders in Suffolk in the last three months. Motorcycle deaths appear to be on the increase, with eight recorded last year and six occurring already this year – and these figures do not account for serious injuries caused by motorcycle accidents.

One in five road deaths in the UK are people on motorcycles. Perhaps not surprisingly, riders are 43 times more likely to die than people in cars. 

Many motorcyclists are killed due to other drivers failing to spot them, but riders are also often killed due to speeding, particularly on rural roads with hidden junctions and other hazards. Suffolk police are urging riders to be aware of the dangers they face on the road and to take simple safety measures such as being visible, dressing for safety, and being aware of other road users.
