About the 6th or 7th motorbike accident in the space of a month, half of which have proved fatal.

As a biker from the area where the incident occurred, the Halfords / McDonald's area is a hot spot of danger. In rush hour times we have people nearly doubling the speed limits unless it's really backed up. At night I have to admit I have witnessed an abundance of boy racers meeting in the Halfords car park tearing up and down the roads. I have myself nearly been a victim of their driving behaviour. I propose the car parks in these areas are closed when business hours are concluded, to prevent dangerous drivers from gathering and competing with each other in these areas to where they can be managed.

Are you saying that Devon roads are state of the art then? I must have missed them because they seem even more in the dark ages than ours do.
MOST collisions are caused by driver OR rider error very few are caused by the actual road itself one of the other big causes is speed.......

It's never the roads fault,usually the car driver does something stupid and dangerous,and the biker fails to avoid it.
