New crash statistics revealed

Sheffield Advanced Motorcyclists - Latest crash statistics
New crash statistics revealed   Figures from the DfT have revealed that UK traffic collisions in the 12 months up to June 2020 were down 16 per cent and road deaths reduced by 14 per cent compared to the equivalent period in the preceding year. While this is good news for road safety generally, the reduction in casualties for cyclists were less impressive, with the number of cyclists killed or seriously injured down just four per cent in the first 6 months of 2020.
 
Neil Greig, IAM RoadSmart Director of Policy & Research, said: “While motor traffic reduced as a result of national lockdowns, cycling traffic increased and there has unfortunately not been the same positive impact on cycling casualties when compared with other road users. We therefore urge all road users to continue to be extra vigilant for cyclists as more people take to their bikes during lockdown.”
