Devon Attributes Decline in Motorcycle Crash Rates to Traffic Signs
Motorcycle accidents in the United Kingdom county of Devon have decreased, and some credit new signs as the reason for the decline in crash rates. Signs reading BIKER IN YOUR BLINDSPOT? and THINK BIKE have been placed at key places along local roads, and they seem to have had a positive impact. Between 2010 and 2011, the four roads that received the signs saw crash rates reduced from 14 to 1. The city council and local motorcyclists praise the new signs.
