Response to TfL motorcycle death figures in London

IAM | Institute of Advanced Motorists

The Institute of Advanced Motorists' (IAM) response to the news that there were 127 deaths on London's roads in 2014, 27 of which were motorcyclists, last year is as follows:

IAM's director of policy and research Neil Greig said: "Motorcycling is gaining in popularity in the capital where it offers an excellent solution to London's congestion problems, but it is worrying that deaths are on the increase.  Drivers are clearly learning to look out for pedestrians and cyclists but the vulnerability of motorcyclists is often forgotten. As well as biker awareness campaigns for all road users the IAM would like to see easy access to extra training for those taking up urban commuting for the first time."
