Cutting motorbike fatalities
Sir, – The “disproportionate risk of fatal injury for motorcyclists” (Brendan Chapman, August 19th) lies mostly with the motorcyclist. A simple way to reduce the risk would be for those motorcyclists who currently don’t obey speed limits and maintain lane discipline to change their behaviour.
The use of bus lanes would only reduce the amount of weaving in and out of traffic undertaken by these risk-taking motorcyclists. A behavioural change is probably the simplest way to increase a motorcyclist’s longevity. – Yours, etc,
