PTW Riders: improving safety and reducing collisions and casualties
Delivered online 8 - 26 March 2021
As all road safety professionals know, PTW riders are at a significantly higher risk of being involved in fatal or serious road injury collision than other road users.
DfT figures show that in 2019, 336 PTW riders were killed on roads across Great Britain, 19% of all fatalities.
In the same year there were 6,198 killed and seriously injured PTW casualties and a total of 16,224 casualties. This equates to a casualty rate of 5,051 per billion miles - compared to 195 among car occupants.
This online event will comprise a mix of presentations, discussion sessions and podcasts featuring experts from academia, road safety and the PTW sector - outlining the measures they think we should be taking to help reduce collisions and casualties among PTW riders.
The event, which is being organised by Road Safety GB, will be aired free-to-all during March 2021, commencing Monday 8 March.
