Rider deaths down

Motorcycle fatalities fell 10% last year according to latest government figures. It’s the second year in a row of improvement after a fall of 15% in 2010. Rider deaths were down 33% in 2011 compared to the average number killed per year from 2005-2009.  The motorcycle fatality rate – taking into account miles travelled by bike – was down even...

"you can never tell how a horse is going to react to any noise"---so it makes sense to take it out on a very busy A-Road---??????  Why should other road users be denied its use because their choice of ride has its own mind and is not mechanical?

Oh and Blue-eyes---havnt you ever travelled over national speed limit? ( and where did I mention he didnt deserve the ban)---are you saying anyone who does 104 in a 60 deserves a ban--or anyone who does 104 in a 60 "and gets caught" deserves a ban--where do you stand exactly?  Yes I have but not at 100 in a 60, and everyone who does a 100 in a 60 or 70 deserves a ban.   In fact,  above 30 in a 20, above 45 in a 30, above 60 in a 40, above 75 in a 50,  above 90 should be banned.  The road infrastructure including the condition of maintenance in the UK is not suitable for these speeds

 

The whole point of the post is simply--was his penalty exacerbated by the presence of a horse---indeed what would have been without a horse :-DDD----so theres no need for unpleasentries--oh and the speed was apparently before the said horse--and hes not a bad rider--he saw the "possible" threat--checked his mirror and reduced his speed--- Yes it was exacerbated by the presence of a horse, but if he was riding that fast and was unawhere of the horse and rider than he, in my opionon is not paying attention to the road ahead, he didn't see her until it was too late.

I have been on the receiving end of drivers going too fast  end was left in the middle of road by some twat who knocked me off my bicycle and then had the decency to leave the scene,  That left me with 40 stitches in my face.  The police estimated his speed as 85 mph in a 40 zone.

I commute 250 miles each to work on my SV1000, but I don't go above 85. 

I never speed in a 20-40 zone.  The other limits depending on the conditions and traffic I do speed.

Careful what you wish for, TNTbikes

There's a very simple way to get the bike death rate down to 0, and it would have relatively little effect on the economy.  ACPO Plc are on record as calling bikes "irrelevant toys".

Remember, the goal of "Visual Zero" is to achieve 0 deaths by any means necessary.

Hi Rogerborg, I agree because, somewhat unsuprisingly, ACPO Plc are  out of touch with society and policing, yet wield an awful lot of misguided power. They could well decide to help reduce the casualty rate be helping to legislate us all off the road in conjunction with the government, such is their toadying stance.
