 Look for the car, look for the bike... look for the bike again

Injuries to motorcyclists are far out of proportion to their presence on our roads. Motorcyclists are just 1 per cent of total road traffic, but account for 19 per cent of all Great Britain's road user deaths.

If you're driving on the roads of South Yorkshire remember to 'Look for the car, look for the bike... look for the bike again.'

 Speeding: Kill your speed, not your girlfriend

Young drivers are hugely over-represented in collision and traffic fatality statistics. On average, over 1,800 young male drivers and over 1,000 female passengers are killed or seriously injured in road traffic collisions in the UK every year.


To reduce the number of young drivers that are killed and seriously injured, on 2 February 2009, the South Yorkshire Casualty Reduction Partnership is launching a “Kill your speed, not your girlfriend” campaign aimed at motorists and passengers in the 17-24 year-old age group.
