Hampshire Constabulary is supporting Ride to Work Week which starts today and has been organised by the Motorcycle Industry Association.
The police are encouraging bikers to update their skills by viewing their Safe Urban Rider and Urban Filtering films which offer safety advice.
They are also asking bikers to consider a Bikesafe course aimed at bridging the gap from the motorcycle test into post-test training.
Road safety sergeant Rob Heard said: ‘Ride to Work Week provides an ideal opportunity to better inform all road users that commuter riders account for our largest casualties group, rather than leisure riders as many wrongly assume.

‘Statistics for Hampshire show that the greatest number of motorcycle and moped riders are injured in our cities of Southampton and Portsmouth on roads with 30mph speed limits.’
The figures highlight that most bikers are injured on weekdays at commuting times while the numbers of riders injured at weekends and in the evening is lower.
