The actions taken in the first few moments after a motorbike collision can be crucial in minimising injuries and can make a real difference to the lives of those involved. But there can be some uncertainty about what to do in these situations.
Road safety charity 95 Alive is running a free training course, by bikers for bikers, designed to answer these uncertainties. The course uses the expertise of Emergency Services and Road Safety Officers to prepare motorcyclists should the worst happen on the roads.
The Biker Down course is aimed at motorcyclists of all ages and experience. The free course offers people the chance to learn practical skills to help avoid being involved in a crash, as well as essential first-aid training and advice on what to do should they find themselves first on the scene of a crash where someone is injured.
Three courses dates have been scheduled, taking place in North Yorkshire, UK.
