Staffordshire bikers are being targeted for the promotion of safer riding on the city’s roads in a new biker safety campaign. Motorcyclists are among the most vulnerable road users with a large percentage being killed due to unsafe driving which has resulted in the campaign held by Staffordshire Safer Roads Partnership. A series of events will take place which will offer advice on safer driving and will give bikers the opportunity to attend training courses. There will also be a chance for riders to have their driving skills assessed to ensure safer road usage.
The Community Safety Lead with the Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service states that, although Staffordshire has some of the safest highways in the UK, they still wish to work hard to bring the number of accidents on the road down. A number of events have been held in the county which have seen a significant reduction in the number of road accidents involving motorcyclists. Events such as Bike Sense and Ride it Right have already promoted safe usage of the roads among motorcyclists.
Road traffic accidents and compensation
Unfortunately, not everyone is as responsible when using the road as you may be meaning that accidents still have the potential to occur. As motorcyclists are among the most vulnerable road users, the risks of injury are much higher if an accident occurs. Proper biker safety training and some common sense when using the road all help to prevent accidents or reduce the risk of injury to motorcyclists as well as other drivers and pedestrians. However, if you are involved in a road traffic accident and are injured, then you may be able to make a compensation claim if the accident was someone else’s fault. A compensation claims company like Accident Advice helpline can assist you.
