Presentation: Delivering Insights: Understanding Motorcyclist Risk Across London

Road Safety Analysis has been working with a number of London boroughs analysing the types of motorcyclists who are involved in collisions on their roads and who live in their area. This analysis provides practical insights into who these riders are and how they can be engaged with.

This presentation will explain the types of insight provided and how the findings have been used on the ground in Lewisham and Newham to try to address their specific issues.
