On average, about a quarter of motorcycle fatalities every year happen on rural roads – often on a corner where the road changes direction.
That’s why RoSPA has produced a five minute video to highlight the skills necessary – and the principals needed – to safely negotiate bends.
The video features a police advanced motorcyclist, who shares some of his experiences to help riders plan for what they can realistically expect to happen.
It looks at limit points, what they are and why they are important to help riders tackle left, right and a series of corners on a rural road.
RoSPA has made the video, produced with support from the DfT, available for highways and road safety partnerships to use on their website and to support local motorcycle initiatives.
RoSPA has also produced four short social media videos, looking specifically at limit points, right and left hand corners and series of corners.
