Motorcyclists cleared to use Plymouth bus lanes

1 of 1

Motorcyclists will be given the right to use bus lanes in Plymouth, on an 18 month trial.

The trial was given the go ahead after the city council and police agreed it would reduce motorcycle accidents caused by filtering, and it would increase the visibilty of motorcyclists to other road users.

However, the police are warning motorcyclists to be cautious when using bus lanes, because of drivers using junctions that cut through the bus lanes.

13 bikers have been killed already this year on roads in Plymouth, and the council hopes the trial will reduce the amount of collisions and reduce congestion.
