Powered Two Wheels
Motorcycles, scooters and mopeds are a low-cost form of transport and can be particularly convenient where public transport is not frequent and walking and cycling is not feasible.
They are also more fuel and space efficient than single occupancy cars and contribute less to congestion. However, safety for motorcyclists is always an issue.
The Council has introduced specific signage on the popular recreational routes used by motorcyclists which has successfully reduced casualties. It also supports awareness campaigns and rider training initiatives aimed at motorcyclists and drivers.
