MAG to contribute to Young Driver Focus conference

MAG is participating in a one-day event for road safety professionals to consider ways to reduce collisions and casualties among young, less experienced bikers.

The event, organised by Road Safety GB, will take place on Wednesday, 6th March, 2019 at the Aston Villa football grounds in Birmingham.
Lembit Öpik, MAG’s Director of Communications & Public Affairs, and Colin Brown, MAG’s Director of Campaigns & Political Engagement, will both be contributing to the event.

Sessions will cover the extent of the safety issue regarding younger riders, the primary causes of motorcycle crashes, the business case for motorcycling, training, commuting, engagement with younger riders and the approach being taken by the industry and Highways England towards the issues.

  ‘MAG recognises this important initiative as one that we should be involved with,‘ says Lembit. ‘MAG activists and riders in general would find it interesting – and your contribution would be really appreciated in helping to formulate next steps from the sessions. I hope you’ll be able to attend.’
