London Assembly Transport Committee to investigate concerns over motorcyclist safety in capital

According to 2015 figures from TfL, 27 riders of powered two-wheelers, including motorbikes and scooters, were killed on London’s roads in 2014. Despite representing just 1% of all traffic, powered two-wheeler riders accounted for 17% of all casualties in 2014.

In response, the committee will hear tomorrow (15 October) in City Hall from TfL, the motorcycle industry, user groups and road safety campaigners about trends in casualty data for motorcyclists and reasons for the relatively high rate.  

Also on the agenda is the progress with TfL’s motorcycle safety action plan – and impact of education and enforcement initiatives and the impact of the policy of allowing motorbikes into bus lanes.
