Vision Zero South West has announced a £50,000 funding pot for road safety projects that will help benefit motorcyclists in Devon & Cornwall.
The road safety partnership is looking to work with communities and/or business to research, provide training or deliver projects focused on enhancing rider safety.
Motorcycle death or serious injury is a particular concern for Devon & Cornwall. Between 2019 – 2021 we tragically lost 33 riders (23.5% of all fatalities) and a further 566 were seriously injured (27.5% of all serious injuries).
Given that riders represent around 1% of road users overall, they are significantly overrepresented when it comes to injury. A deep dive of stats has identified two principle areas of concern:
• Age 16-24 riders on lower capacity motorcycles (under 125cc)
• Age 25-69 riders on higher capacity motorcycles
If you have a project you think will help us to deliver on our vision then we would love to hear from you.
The maximum grant is £10,000 and must be able to be complete by 31st August 2024.
Please complete the following EOI by 5pm Tuesday 23rd May. Successful applicants will be told on 15th June.
