Motorbike stars back safety scheme

by  | 

TV motorsport presenter Louise Brady and former Superbike Champion and commentator Steve Parrish have put their names to a new scheme aimed at improving motorcycle road safety.

The Enhanced Rider Scheme (ERS) will be showcased at the 2008 Motorcycle and Scooter Show. The event takes place at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, from November 28 to December 7.

The ERS is a new training package that forms part of the Government's Motorcycling Strategy to help reduce the number of fatal and serious accidents on our roads each year involving motorcyclists. ERS aims to encourage and help qualified riders become safer on the roads and reduce accidents.

Louise Brady said: "The ERS offers an opportunity to iron out bad habits and keep you safer on the roads, as well as helping you get more from your bike. And it can help to gain riders discounts on insurance.

"Accident statistics among motorcyclists are high and they suggest that we should all have our riding ability assessed from time to time."
