Purpose of the Trip

Most accidents involve a short trip. This is something to remember if you are thinking of not wearing protective gear for a small journey down the road.

Right of way accidents and overtaking/filtering crashes occur at peak traffic times (morning and late afternoon). For those of you who ride your bike to work pay particular attention here.

Bend accidents peak in the afternoons, early evenings and Sundays. This suggests that bend accidents are more associated with recreational riding. Where the rider’s journey was known in one study, bend accidents were more likely to include people riding for pleasure than people going to work.
