KSI rate falls in Wales

The number of motorcyclists killed or injured on roads in Wales has dropped for the first time in five years – 693 incidents in 2015 compared with 2014’s seven-year high figure of 749.

Incidents recorded by the police reveal 25 people died in 2015, slightly down from the previous 12 months.

The Welsh government said the safety of road users was a priority but it wanted more help. A spokesman said: “There were fewer motorcyclist casualties in 2015 than in the previous year, which is to be welcomed, but we want to see that reduction continue further still.

“The Road Safety Framework for Wales sets out the actions we, along with our key partners, are taking to increase the safety of our roads and reduce the number of casualties.

“What’s clear, however, is that government cannot do this alone and we must all share a responsibility to ensure that we use our roads safely.”
