WA motorcyclist fatalities and critical injuries
In 2014, 44 motorcyclists were killed and 61 were critically injured as a result of a crash in WA. The majority of both the fatalities 59% (26) and those who were critically injured 70% (43), were due to crashes in the metropolitan area. Nearly half 45% (20) of the fatalities and a third 33% (20) of the critically injured motorcyclists were involved in crashes occurring on the weekend.
In 2014, eight cyclists were killed and 18 were critically injured as a result of a crash in WA, an increase of 19% on the five-year average. All these fatalities, and most of the critically injured 83% (15), were due to crashes in the metropolitan area.
Rider Down has a passion to reduce the number of fatalities through education and by providing life saving skills. Our focus is NOT delivering a ‘modified’ first aid course but comes from experience and understanding the injuries that contribute to motorcycle fatalities. The skills that we teach you are NOT taught in any first aid course, and that is the Rider Down difference.
