We were recently contacted by a MAG representative who was contacted by a PhD student at the University of Nottingham, with a specific interest in investigating accidents involving motorcyclists at junctions.
Statistics indicate there has been a great increase in seriously injured motorcyclists since 2004, with a rise of 8.7% from 2013-2014 (DfT, 2014). There has also been an 8% rise in the number of motorcyclist fatalities in 2015 compared with 2014, with a total of 365 motorcyclist fatalities (DfT, 2015).
A survey has been compiled to investigate motorcyclists’ perspectives towards accidents at junctions, which typically involve a motorcycle and a car. These insights are extremely important in order to increase researchers understanding as to why these accidents may occur.
This survey will take around 10 minutes to complete, comprising of a series of questions regarding your attitudes towards accidents at junctions. There will also be some open response questions, where you’re free to disclose as much or as little information on the given topic as you feel comfortable with.
You can find the survey here. Please complete it if you possibly can – http://www.lifelongdriving.org/limesurvey/index.php/969137/lang-en
