Quoting numbers of deaths alone is not a real answer.I just love ignorant doom sayers like ATG who consider themselves World Authorities on Fecking Everything.
In 2013, 362 motorcyclists including pillions were killed on British Roads, compared to 8560 car drivers /passengers. So making sarcastic nasty comments about Bike riders being organ donors isn't either funny or accurate.
No being experienced is not a risk factor, likewise a large poweful bike isn't either. According to the IAM and RoSPA, the inexperienced young riders on 125cc are at most risk of injury. Which is why, training and testing of inexperienced riders is the main focus to try and reduce accidents.
So whilst it isn't rocket science, it is a bit more complicated that the rantings of an arrogant junior officer.
We also have to take account of numbers of cars on the road compared with the number of motorcyclists.
Government statistics give the following as a percentage.
Cars & vans = 92.8%
Motorcycles = 3.5%
If you work out as numbers of deaths per vehicle ratio you will find that car drivers (92.8) are slightly lower than motorcycle riders (103).
As for motorcyclists carrying donor cards, what is the problem. As far as i am concerned we should have an OPT OUT system, not an opt in.
