A couple of months ago kent county council advertised that 372 riders were killed and injured in the last three years.
Since then they have had a few more including a police biker that got crushed between two vehicles whilst on duty.So what do you get from all of this, some overpaid tory MP that wants to put things in prospective, Probably has never been on a motorbike in his life, but cares not anyway as long as he still gets a wacking great pay packet. It is a difficult subject to talk about, but you can only comment as a motorcyclist and why it keeps happening, and how to prevent it. To me I would never read the highway code because nobody has the time or patience to stick to the rules of the road. There are some crazy bikers out there but there are thousands of car drivers that dont know a biker is there, and also don't care if a biker is there or not. Please comment on this. For safety I have always had my bike headlight on dip even in daylight coz there are some blind drivers out there, I believe europe has the right idea about flouresent jackets for bike riders, I would wear one. To anyone that reads this please comment on what i have written. cheers
