NFCC Motorcylce Safety Week – Whiteways Event, West Sussex
April 6th 2023 @ 10:30 am - 2:00 pm
Monday 3rd of April was the start of The National Fire Chiefs Council’s (NFCC) Motorcycle Safety Week. The use of motorcycles increased in 2020 – 2021 by 17 per cent. Despite motorcycles making up around one per cent of vehicle traffic, in 2021 they accounted for 20 per cent of road fatalities and 12 per cent of road injuries in Great Britain.
The week-long campaign encouraged Fire and Rescue Services, along with Road Safety Partnerships, to share road safety advice for riders and – no matter what level of experience they have – to improve their knowledge and skills by taking additional rider education.
Sussex Safer Roads Partnership attended 1066 Café with West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service, Sussex police, Road Policing Unit and a representative from Bike Safe Sussex.
If you’re in the area please pop along. We will be on hand to provide road safety advice and offer support and guidance on upcoming Bikerdown and BikeSafe courses.
