I recently came across an organisation in the the USA that has halved the number of motorcycle crashes in their state with a comprehensive approach to motorcycle safety, training, public education and licensing.
Here is sample of some of their campaigns.
Nice to see something not just about speed. Our politicians continue to skew data so they can ignore the facts that the majority of accidents are simply not speed related.
Our number 1 road killer has always been fatigue but there is no means to profit from that so it is still largely ignored. For motorcycles not being seen by cars is often the cause of accidents yet not enough attention is paid to this problem.
Get over there now and have a read, some good info on their site. I was especially interested in their current hi-vis campaign and how headlights turned on in daytime rated low for making you more visible.
