Motorcycle riders have a much higher risk of serious or fatal injury if involved in a crash. While helmets and protective clothing can reduce the severity of injuries, compared with drivers, riders are more directly exposed to the massive forces of a collision - whether it is with another vehicle, the road or roadside trees and poles.
With motorcycle usage growing in popularity and motorcyclists being more vulnerable to injury than other road users, saving riders’ lives and preventing injuries remains a critical road safety challenge. This section provides safety tips for riders and motorcycles.
