15-11-2010 Urban riders road safety DVD released

A new road safety DVD focusing specifically on commuter PTW riders in
towns and cities has been launched in Leeds.

The Commuter Survival Guide for Motorists looks at planning and
positioning from an urban perspective.

Filmed on location in West Yorkshire, the DVD covers a number of real
world scenarios that riders commonly face. It looks at how riders can
mitigate the dangers that the constantly changing urban road environment
present.

David Glanville, west Yorkshire PTW road safety officer, said: “Riding
in town requires a different skill set to negotiating country roads.

“Yes, speeds in town are generally a lot lower but there are far more
potential hazards and riders can’t always rely on other road users to do
the right thing. This resource should help riders get to and from work
more safely and efficiently.”

The DVD is available to riders across west Yorkshire through local
dealerships and accessory shops. Alternatively click here
