    Weather that puts motorcyclists at greater injury risk


    According to official UK government figures, injuries to motorcyclists are out of proportion to their presence on our roads. Motorcyclists account for just one per cent of total traffic, but 19 per cent of all road user deaths. Every day in the UK, 30 motorcyclists are killed or injured at road junctions.

    What kind of weather conditions put motorcyclists at greater risk?

    • Hot Weather
      Hot weather can cause fatigue in motorcyclists, and contribute to suffering a serious road injury. It is important to take a break every few hours in order to cool down, and avoid suffering an accident on the road.
    • Heavy Rain
      When driving a motorcycle you are exposed to the elements. Heavy rain will also obscure your vision, and that of the motorists around you, making you harder to spot. Take precautions such as wearing high-visibility clothing and avoiding last minute decisions on the road, to help prevent a road accident.
    • High Winds
      Driving a motorbike offers little to no protection from high winds. Head and tail winds are not usually too problematic for motorcyclists, however, blustery side winds can be more difficult to manage. If you do find yourself driving in these conditions, be prepared to lean and steer to better control your bike, and avoid suffering an injury on the road.
    • Cold Weather
      Dressing appropriately is the best way to keep safe while riding in cold weather. Invest in a good pair of gloves and high-quality motorcycle boots. Additionally, keep your torso warm and wind-proof your body, by sealing the openings in your outfit and wearing an insulating material.
