Road Safety Conference Reports on Motorcyclists

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by Day, Apr 2, 2009.

  1. Read through "Hazard perception and responding in car drivers and motorcyclists"

    Very good read, particularly in the section "HAZARDS FOR MOTORCYCLE RIDERS". Some stuff that I didnt know, particularly that motorcycle riders have the greatest hazard perception of all raod users while in their cage.
  2. Given that riders have to complete training that talks quite clearly about buffer zones, hazzard perception and what not, its no suprise that these people are the most aware on the road.

    Actually that sort of proves that TRAINING is the way to go. Perhaps P platers shouldn't have had all those restrictions thrown at them and instead have been given training? Pity the government wants to ignore those statistics.
