Motorcycle safety show a success - despite the weather!
The West Midlands Casualty Reduction Scheme (WMCRS) has hailed the first On Two Wheels road safety show a success, despite a lower than expected turn out.
The event, held on 18 July at Birmingham City Football Club, provided road safety information and advice, including ‘hands on’ training for moped and motorcycle riders from across the West Midlands.
The event received support from road safety partnerships, West Midlands Police, regional motorcycle dealerships, riding instructors and road safety-related businesses.
Inspector Mick Harthill from WMCRS said: “We were expecting foul weather but although it didn’t materialise the prediction obviously dissuaded some from visiting the event.
“Nearly 1,300 people did attend and, most importantly, a lot of information and advice about voluntary rider training and protective clothing was shared.
“This is a very positive way to engage with two wheeled commuters and the motorcycling community as a whole; it was as focused and informative as it was enjoyable and sociable."
“Visitor feedback was excellent, the support of the motorcycle industry was very much appreciated and we would like to develop the event and make it happen again next year.”
