Motorbike Safety Awareness Month

With the warmer weather on it’s way, it’s time to remind all road users to stay alert and share the road with motorcyclists. May is a very important month amongst motorcyclists. Motorbike safety awareness month, is widely recognised as the time to reflect on how to be the safest rider possible.

Both motorcyclists and motorists have a duty of responsibility whilst out on the roads. Checking blind spots, mirrors and using signals are always necessary requirements.

Being distracted whilst driving could be the difference between spotting a motorcyclist or not. Remember, always eliminate all distractions before setting off on your journey. To find out more about how to do this, please read more on our distractions segment.

Motorcyclists also have a level of responsibility when they set off on the roads. Always make sure to wear full protective gear, clearly signal before making any turns, and ensure your bike is in best working condition.

Best practice:

  • Be alert on the roads, take your time, signal and always check mirrors
  • Leave enough space between you and the driver in front
  • Riders must ALWAYS wear protective gear
  • Take a motorcycle safety awareness course
