Motorcycle accident statistics

The DfT have released its latest statistics on motorcycling and motorcycles in Great Britain during 2009

The figures reveal that there has been a drop of about 1,000 in those motorcyclists involved in KSI (killed or seriously injured) accident types when compared to 1999. Contributory factors in motorcycle related accidents include loss of control, failure to look properly and failure to judge another person’s path or speed. Nearly a quarter of accidents that involved motorbikes with an engine capacity of under 50cc were caused by the inexperience of the motorcyclist.
