Motorcycle Safety

Every October Motorcycle Awareness Month is promoted by the Motorcycle Council of NSW (MCCNSW).

We are currently seeing an increase in motorcycle fatalities.

39 motorcyclists have lost their lives on NSW road in 2022 so far – the same as for all of 2021. On average, more than 7 motorcyclists are killed or injured every day on the road.

International research indicates that per kilometre of vehicle travel, motorcycle riders are approximately 34 times more likely to be killed in a crash than vehicle occupants.

Council’s Road Safety Officers work closely with our local motorcycle shop to promote motorcycle safety messaging and Transport for NSW ‘Ride to Live’ campaign.

The ‘Ride to Live’ campaign was developed by TfNSW. The campaign aims to promote good motorcycle riding decision making.

The Centre for Road Safety has developed safety tips for motorcycle riders on;

MOTOCAP is an independent free resource supported by government and private road safety organisations across Australia and New Zealand. MotoCAP test gear using rigorous scientific methods to provide ratings for motorcyclists helping them to choose the right gear with the best protection and breathability for their ride.

CRASH provides motorcycle helmet buyers with independent and consistent information on the varying levels of protection from injury in a motorcycle crash.
