Motorcycle training resource available FOC to RSOs

Monday 17th June 2013

A motorcycle training resource that is widely used in areas of the Midlands is now available free of charge to other road safety and educational practitioners seeking to enhance powered two-wheeler (PTW) rider skills.

‘Know the Dangers Scenarios’ was researched and developed in partnership with the Bare Bones Project and the Shiny Side Up campaign and in consultation with compulsory basic training (CBT) trainers and local motorcycle forums in Nottinghamshire.

Designed to illustrate a range of scenarios riders could experience on daily journeys, the Know the Dangers resource is based on collision information researched by accident investigation teams from police stats 19 data. The resource illustrates crash ‘hotspots’ for riders on urban and rural routes.

First launched 12 months ago, Know the Dangers is already widely used by trainers in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire.
