Initiative details

Describe the characteristics of your target audience 
Young men, aged 18 - 15 Motorcyclists on low powered bikes

Organisation details

Please describe the main road safety challenges/problems you have addressed or are addressing. 
Motorcycle casualties are a concern in London as a whole, but there are many different types of riders. In Lewisham we do not have the same rider casualties as a borough only 10 miles away. We are addressing a problem with young riders using a bike to commute, we have limited public transport compared to some boroughs. There fore bikes are used as cheaper, and quicker alternatives to the bus or car.
What are your objectives? 
To increase awareness of motorcyle riders using local roads, ultimately reduce casualty numbers, but to increase the ability to prediict and anticipate to the dangers they face.
