Motorcycling the focus of latest ‘Driving Vision Zero’ newsletter
The Safer Essex Roads Partnership (SERP) has launched the second edition of its online magazine – with a focus on motorcycling.
Each edition of the quarterly ‘Driving Vision Zero’ newsletter centres on a certain road safety subject – providing the most recent statistics, as well as information on ongoing initiatives.
The latest edition of the magazine focuses on motorcycling – with data showing powered two wheeler (PTW) riders are at the highest risk of being killed or seriously injured on the region’s roads.
Statistics also show young riders account for around 16% of all motorcycle miles travelled in Essex but comprise 33% of those killed or seriously injured.
With that in mind, the newsletter outlines the ‘Street Spirit’ campaign, which calls on young riders to enhance their knowledge on safe riding by watching five short videos and completing a quiz.
This automatically enters them into the competition, giving them the chance to win one of two brand new bikes, with full protective kit and a year’s insurance.
In September, the winners of the 2019 competition were announced – with Stephen, aged 17 and from Pitsea, and Jamie who is 18 and from Colchester, presented with their bikes in Southend.
A refreshed version of the campaign will run again next year with the addition of a virtual reality training film.
