New figures may come as no surprise to many bikers
THE LATEST FINDINGS in a Department of Transport report, released yesterday, have found 38 per cent of accidents on UK roads reported to the Police in 2009 were caused by 'failing to look properly'.Four out of five most frequently reported contributory factors involved driver or rider error or reaction. Exceeding the speed limit was reported as a factor in just 5 per cent of accidents, however, the seemingly low figure was responsible for 17 per cent of all fatalities. Exceeding the speed limit and travelling too fast for the conditions were reported in 13 per cent of all accidents, which accounted for 27 per cent of all fatalities.The report made worrying reading for those on foot; pedestrians failing to look properly was reported in 58 per cent of accidents in which a pedestrian was injured or killed.
SMDSY strikes again!
So ..... when do they start to educate the cagers? 'Bout time they had a three part test.
Maybe a test for the footer too?
