Award for casualty reduction initiative

Wednesday 7th July 2010

RideSafe BackSafe has been named the ‘Northwest Safety Project of the Year 2010’ by The Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation (CIHT).

Linda Sanderson, project Lead for RideSafe BackSafe, said: “RideSafe BackSafe has proved successful because it can rely on the constant support of so many people who are focused on casualty reduction and genuinely passionate about the well-being of motorcyclists.

“Road safety practitioners, regional police forces, motorcycling representative bodies, riding instructors and the motorcycling industry as a whole all play an integral part in managing RideSafe BackSafe as a dedicated and trusted ‘biker-friendly’ initiative.”

Don't get me wrong but i am an avid supporter of any initiative that helps reduce the motorcycle carnage on our roads and that includes RSBS.

However if you entice membership i.e. registration on the website by the giving of a free gift then its going to attract many more people who have no interest in RSBS or road safety.

For further training the RSBS team support the other organisations such as IAM who mainly do the job of instruction, obviously supported under the RSBS banner but would be made available without the intervention of RSBS.

Whilst it is doing a good job and is well supported either verbally or practically by manufacturers and individuals within the business it is basically a enabler.

Some accolade, in my opinion, should go to those registered members who regularly contribute to the website and inform learners and newbies and oldies alike of information that relates to motorcycling and road safety matters.
