Make roads safer for bikes

This petition had 127,708 supporters

My son Nick was killed whilst riding his motorbike at just 19 years old, full of life, energy, and so unbelievably thoughtful. He bought smiles to everyone's face and literally brightened up the room with his awesome sense of humour.

The accident that took his life three years ago was due to negligence of another driver who pulled out and onto the road claiming he didn't see him coming. 

My son is not the only one this has happened to, more incidents could be stopped if only drivers and cyclists learnt how to better interact on roads. To make sure this happens, myself and bikers alike, are calling for the vehicle theory test to include a mandatory section on how drivers and bikes can look out for each other on road. An example could be having a short informative video showing how there is a lack of vision from a drivers perspective.

Nothing will ever bring our boy back, but if his accident can prevent another then not all is lost in vain. That's why need you to sign this petition and help this go as far and as wide as possible. 

Please sign and share. 

Thank you
