A road safety video which features a fatal motorbike collision has attracted nearly 12 million viewers online. The video, released in a bid to get motorcycle riders and drivers to think more about road safety, features a fatal motorbike collision which occurred on the A47 at Honingham in June 2013, killing Norwich motorcyclist David Holmes.
The video has also attracted thousands of views and opinions from across the world, with people commenting on the Norfolk and Suffolk police website and social media pages. Head of the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing Unit, Chief Inspector Chris Spinks, said, “I’m really astonished by the response and I’m confident that with this number of people having seen the video, someone’s behaviour has been influenced for the better. David’s family have always been of the belief that if this video could save just one life, it would have been worth releasing into the public domain.”
Are you a motorcyclist who has been injured?
Did you know that motorcyclists are 38 times more likely to be killed in a road traffic accident than car drivers? In fact, 4,866 motorcyclists were seriously injured and 331 killed on Britain’s roads in 2013. If you have been injured in an accident whilst riding your motorbike, you may be able to make a claim for compensation. You’ll need to prove that the accident was someone else’s fault – for example, a distracted car driver or someone who wasn’t paying attention and didn’t see you. The amount of compensation you’ll receive will depend on the extent of your injuries, pain and suffering, loss of earnings and any medical costs you may have incurred as a result of your accident.
