Bikers asked to share ‘tales of the road’
East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service has launched an online survey to help understand the experiences of bikers on the county’s roads.
The survey, launched to coincide with Bexhill Motofest on Sunday 26 July, aims to capture information from the perspective of the biker. It asks questions about how long people have been riding bikes, whether they have had a near miss or a road traffic collision, and what advice bikers would give to other road users.
Garry Alexander, from the Service’s intervention and incident reduction team, said: “We know we have a significant number of people on our roads who get on their bikes for work and pleasure. Far too often they are involved in road traffic collisions – sadly with serious consequences for the riders.
“We want to get a better understanding of what it is like for them on the roads. We hope this will raise awareness among all road users – after all we all share the road and want to get home safely.”
East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service is part of the Sussex Safer Roads Partnership.
