IAM responds to road fatalities figure for London
The Institute of Advanced Motorists’ (IAM) has responded to the news that there were 127 deaths on London’s roads in 2014, 27 of which were motorcyclists, last year.
IAM’s director of policy and research Neil Greig said: “Motorcycling is gaining in popularity in the capital where it offers an excellent solution to London’s congestion problems, but it is worrying that deaths are on the increase. Drivers are clearly learning to look out for pedestrians and cyclists but the vulnerability of motorcyclists is often forgotten. As well as biker awareness campaigns for all road users the IAM would like to see easy access to extra training for those taking up urban commuting for the first time.”
