In South Devon it would appear that road safety is only a temporary issue!
Signs in the county that asked drivers to check for bikers in their mirrors have been put into storage.
Accident rates dropped after the signs were put up on the A380 Newton Abbot to Kingkerswell road, demonstrating that information aimed at drivers really makes a difference, as incidents with a 3rd party still accounts for the majority of motorcycle accidents.
South Devon MAG believe that as the nights draw in and the weather deteriorates, it is even more important that motorists should “Think Bike”. Because of this, there will be an awareness raising event in the Romany Jones layby on the A380 this Saturday 6th Nov between 11am and 1pm, highlighting the Council decision to remove the signs.
The press will be there to cover the story, so go along and offer some support if you are in the area. No one wants to be a casuality- help MAG ensure everyone should “Think Bike”
