'Spot the difference' in Yorkshire
A new resource aimed at young scooter riders has been developed and launched in west Yorkshire.
‘Spot the Difference’ features a local young rider and special effects make up. The artwork is being used in poster and leaflet form and distributed to young riders across west, east and south Yorkshire through CBT centres, schools and colleges. It aims to remind young riders that proper riding kit can really save their skin.
Dave Glanville, west Yorkshire’s PTW road safety officer, said: “We know young riders on small capacity machines are particularly vulnerable.
“What could be a relatively minor incident can result in serious injury because so often these riders are wearing inappropriate kit. We hope that they’ll take on board the information we’re giving them and make a more informed decision about what they chose to wear.”
