Lowest Isle of Man TT Mad Sunday Casualties Ever

Published: 09 June 2010

Isle of Man police are 'overwhelmed' by the reduction in casualties on Mad Sunday this year.

The number of road accidents was reduced from 26 in 2009 to just 8 this year, none of which were serious. Head of the Isle of Man road policing unit, Inspector Mark Britton, said: "We're overwhelmed we did not have any significant collisions on Mad Sunday. We found most riders were generally behaving better but there was still some unacceptable riding.    

"Injuries on Sunday were to a German motorcycle rider who crashed at Signpost breaking his femur. The only other injury was a broken ankle after a crash at Guthrie's."

Isle of Man are continuing strict enforcements of limits where applicable over TT fortnight.
