IHE launches new motorcycling guidelines
The Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE) has launched a revised version of its motorcycling guidelines in a new multi-platform website.
The award winning guidelines have been updated from the 2005 version and set out practical guidance for transportation professionals on providing a safer environment for motorcycles, mopeds and scooters.
Tony Sharp, IHE motorcycling champion, said: ʺThe new, updated version of IHE’s motorcycling guidelines reflects both changes in policy and advances in technology and knowledge since 2005.
ʺIt aims to give industry professionals greater awareness of the specific safety needs of powered two-wheelers and looks at effective ways to improve rider safety.
ʺAlthough there have been several improvements to casualty rates over the last decide, riders are roughly 35 times more likely to be killed and over 50 times more likely to be seriously injured in a reported road collision than car occupants.
ʺRaising awareness of the specific safety requirements for motorcyclists among professionals is crucial and IHE’s Motorcycling Guidelines are a step in that direction.ʺ
The IHE Guidelines have been cited as best practice both domestically and internationally and were awarded the Prince Michael International Road Safety Award in 2005.
The new website was sponsored by the IHE, Motorcycle Industry Association (MCIA), DfT and IAM.
New website includes members’ portal and info on training courses etc
