Winter Safety On Two Wheels // Road Safety Week

Road Safety Week

Tomorrow marks the start of Road Safety Week.

Road Safety Week is the UK’s biggest road safety event, coordinated by Brake and involving thousands of schools, organisations and communities each year.

Road Safety is an important issue to me. I am a passenger in a car most days, but more importantly my kids are also daily passengers. Their safety is the most important thing in the world to me.

Roads are used by Cars, Vans, Motorbikes and Cyclists. Whilst I don’t agree with some of them being on the road, it is important that everyone takes steps to remain safe and be a good road user.

Did you know that there are around 750,000 injures a year resulting in accidents on the road? That number is too high!

There were also 1732 reported road deaths in 2015. 21% of these were motorcyclists.

Now I don’t know about you, but those facts and figures are very worrying.

With winter just around the corner, conditions on the road are getting worse. We will soon be waking up to wet and icy roads with poor visibility due to fog.

Michael Jefferies ( have designed a very informative inforgraphic. This inforgraphic not only provides usefull facts and figures, it also helps those who have ‘two wheels’ to remain safe on the roads.

    This is interesting to read! Here in Minnesota, there is no bike riding at all in the winter. All the bikes go in when the cold comes then they hit the roads again in the summer.

    Thanks for sharing these safety tips!
