Over recent years, motorbike riding has become more popular. Gone are the days, of the mods and rockers, scooters being a much rarer sight on our roads. Bikers are generally really friendly people, who meet together in various places to talk bikes and admire each other’s machines.
There are over a million motorbikes registered for use in the UK, and with nearly 40,000 new ones being sold every year, that number is likely to continue increasing.
For many years, as a percentage of the total traffic on our roads, they accounted for 1%, but now they are nearly 2%, and expected to pass that figure in the not too distant future.
Motorbikes give a lot of pleasure to their riders and pillion passengers, but they all need to be aware of how vulnerable they are to accidents caused by others, and of their right to claim compensation by making Caerleon car accident claims.

Although motorbike riders represent such a low proportion of the traffic on our roads, they are involved in 20% of the road traffic accidents that happen, and are 40 times more likely to die than a car driver.
Their helmets will reduce the risk of them sustaining head or brain injuries by 50%, but still 80% of motorbike rider deaths are caused in this way.
