    Safety appeal after motorcycle accident deaths over Easter weekend

    By David Brown on May 12, 2014

    Over the Easter weekend, three bikers were killed in separate incidents in Wales, highlighting the issue of motorcycle safety. On Good Friday, an accident outside Cardigan claimed the life of Lance Corporal Jamie Stewart Fleming, whilst on April 19th, Christopher Lawrence was killed in a collision with a truck near Cardigan and Stephen Collins died in an accident on the B4297 near Llanedi.

    With motorcyclists around 25 times more likely to be killed in a crash than car occupants, questions about motorcyclist’s safety on our roads have been raised. Even protective clothing and helmets doesn’t reduce the risk by much and the chance of serious injury or death is far greater for bikers.

    Whilst motorbikes only account for around 1% of UK traffic, almost 20% of serious injuries and deaths are due to motorcycle accidents. Research by the Department for Transport has shown that loss of control on bends and overtaking are when crashes are most likely to occur. In West Wales, the number of bikers increases dramatically over the summer months as motorcyclists from across the country head for the hills and coast. Increased vigilance not only by bikers but also by other road users should help to reduce accidents.

    Have you been involved in a motorcycle accident?

    Whether you’re new to riding a motorcycle or have years of experience, you could still be involved in an accident and your risk of death is far greater than if you were travelling in a car. Motorcycle accidents can lead to serious injuries including injuries to the arms and legs which may require skin grafting and surgery. If you’re involved in a motorcycle accident, you may need to take time off work for medical treatment or spend a period of time in hospital, leading to loss of earnings.
