Video: “Stay a hero, stay safe”

This new road safety video – released by the Sussex Safer Roads Partnership – is part of the group’s “Stay a hero, stay safe” campaign. The group claims that motorcycle accidents account for 25% of all accidents on Sussex roads. This campaign aims to reduce overall “killed or seriously injured” incidents by 40%. In contrast to most safety videos, “Stay a hero,...

percentages

CaNsA "So....... cars/vans and trucks account for the other 75% of all accidents on Sussex roads..?you would think they would want to target the 75% not the lesser 25%"
 

Correct in one sence, IF there were an equal amount of each type of vehicle on the road.  BUT when us motorcyclists make up about 1 to 2% of the acutal volume of traffic yet account for 25% of casualties then your theory does not add up.

There is always the arguement of:-

If there were equal amounts of each vehicle, there would be less 2+ vehicle accidents involving a motorbike as road users awareness would be greater.

But also, if my theory doesnt add up then the stats provided by the Sussex Safer Roads Partnership are flawed also. Then again, they have got their data from a DfT report..... and we all know how reliable they are.

Either way, this is just another brilliant way of wasting cash that could be used for something better.

The most successful road saftey campaign in rencent years was "think bike, think biker". And yes, i know it is focusing on a different aspect of bike awareness.

Im all for getting that back up on the telly.

Not sure where

you think Sussex stats are "flawed" CaNsA?
or what else you'd spend the monies on??
 

Agree with you about the "Think Bike/Think Biker" adverts but that has fallen fowl of MCN's Ex-Biker friend, Mike Penning, department of Transport not spending any money on adverts.
 

"By their deeds ye shall know them" (i.e. change the test but actually spend any REAL money.....)

Sorry but it's pathetic

Just a sad attempt at emotional blackmail.

A waste of money that should be diverted to front line cops who need to get some of the smidsey car drivers off the road asap before they kill more bikers
