Motorcycling is a relatively cheap and efficient mode of travel and takes up a small amount of road space, reducing congestion. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are more likely to be involved in fatal or serious collisions on the road than other road users and our analysis shows that young and commuter motorcyclists are particularly at risk in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
