Riders Urged To Fill Out Safety Survey

Always on road safety key

West Australian riders are being asked to complete a survey on road safety prepared by the Motorcycle Riders Association of W.A.

The survey is being organised to coincide with their Motorcycle Safety Week in October 2020.

MRA WA safety officer Dave Wright says they need as many riders as possible to complete the survey, so they have a better understanding of the issues that are important to riders.

“We need as many riders to complete this survey as this will form the focus of the Motorcycle Safety Forum on 10 October 2020.

The anonymous survey will take only 5 to 10 minutes to complete.

It starts with a few questions about your age, licence level, type of bike your ride and how often before diving deeper into why you ride.

The survey also asks riders whether they have heard of the internationally awarded Australian motorcycle safety initiative MotoCAP. which tests and rates motorcycle jackets, pants and gloves on safety and comfort.

Riders are also asked for their ideas about the hazards of the the road and how to fix them.

They provide some examples in multiple choice questions, but also leave plenty of room for your own comments and ideas.

That’s a welcome change from many other motorcycle safety surveys which seem to push an agenda by asking leading questions.

Dave says they encourage participants to make their own comments and suggestions.

“We want riders’ thoughts on these important issues,” he says.

“These can be new initiatives that have never been used in Western Australia, or an action that has been used in the past that you believe deserves to be reinvigorated.”
