Riding safest for 7 years

1 of 1

We’re riding safer than we have in years – according to the latest official stats from the Department for Transport.

The figures have just been released for 2004 and show that 16 per cent fewer riders were killed last year than in 2003, the number of seriously injured riders also fell by 13 per cent.

That makes British roads the safest they have been for motorcyclists since 1998.

The numbers are made even more impressive by the fact that, according to a separate DfT report, there were 55,000 more bikes on the road in 2004 than in 2003.

And the number of miles we all rode in 2004 went up by a mssive 37 per cent over 2003.
