Kent Bikers represent 1% of traffic, yet they are involved in around 25% of all fatal casualties
Motorcyclists are over represented in the killed or seriously injured stats year on year in Kent. Motorcyclists account for just 1% of traffic in Kent, yet they represent a staggering 25% of all fatal casualties. This makes them one of our most vulnerable groups of road users in Kent.
Did you know:
- In urban areas the greatest risk to motorcyclists are other road users
- In rural areas the majority of serious crashes involve single motorcyclists losing control e.g. on left hand bends
