RIDE scheme changes behaviour
96% of bikers who attended the National RIDE Scheme say that it will help them ride more safely, according to evaluation of the course.
The National RIDE Scheme is a one-day course that involves presentations by instructors and group discussions about the risks riders face on the road. It can be offered to riders as an alternative to prosecution for some speeding offences and to riders whose behaviour attracts the attention of the police.
The course, which is delivered by ANDISP (Association of National Driver Improvement Scheme Providers) is designed to increase awareness of riding behaviour and engender a positive and responsible approach to motorcycling. It encourages riders to examine their attitudes and motivations, their approach to risk and their beliefs surrounding inappropriate riding behaviour. The course employs a mix of information exchange, demonstrations and group discussion.
The report, Evaluation of the National Ride Scheme, was commissioned by Road Safety GB, Lancashire County Council Road Safety Group and Transport for London.
Overall, respondents were positive about the course. 96% said it provided them with information and knowledge to help them ride more safely; 95% said they are confident that they can apply what they have learned; 80% agreed or strongly agreed that the course helped them to identify their own bad riding habits; 75% said they had acquired new skills that will help them become a safer rider; and 82% said the course will change their riding.
