As all road safety professionals know, PTW riders are at a significantly higher risk of being involved in fatal or serious road injury collision than other road users.
DfT figures show that in 2019, 336 PTW riders were killed on roads across Great Britain, 19% of all fatalities.
In the same year there were 6,198 killed and seriously injured PTW casualties and a total of 16,224 casualties. This equates to a casualty rate of 5,051 per billion miles - compared to 195 among car occupants.
