BikeSafe – London
Metropolitan Police Service - City of London Police - Transport for London, working in Partnership to make motorcycling safer in London
ScooterSafe - London
This initiative was launched by Warwickshire Police and has been introduced to the London area since the congestion charge was introduced in the City of London.
The ‘rightgear’ campaign.
In January 2010, Richmond Council launched the rightgear campaign with businesses in the Borough. This campaign was formed in partnership with 7 other London Boroughs and Transport for London.
Without the right clothing, minor collisions can quickly turn into serious injury.
Cheap to run, less congestion - it's no wonder motorcycles, scooters and mopeds have become increasingly popular in London.
In a collision with another vehicle, however, the rider will almost always come off worse. And that can be a real pain in more ways than one.
Come off your scooter or moped, even at low speeds, and you'll hit the road with the same effect as sliding across a giant grater.
Wearing proper protective clothing can make a BIG difference. It won't cost an arm and a leg...but it could save your skin.
