Speeding Factor In Almost Half Of Motorcycle Deaths

Bikers speeding was a factor in almost half of all motorcyclist deaths over a 5 year period.

The Road Safety Authority says 171 motorcyclists have been killed, including four in Clare, and 629 have been seriously injured nationally since 2010.

Statistics also show almost a third of motorcyclists involved in fatal collisions had consumed alcohol between 2008 and 2012.


The RSA is urging motorcycle riders to be Bike Safe over the summer months.
