HUNDREDS of motorists, perhaps more, would have found their journey disrupted yesterday after two serious road traffic incidents in Dorset.

A motorcyclist died in a collision with a car at Wool. And a rider was taken to hospital with serious injures after coming off his bike on the Dorset Way in Poole. The crashes happened within an hour of each other. It’s too early to say why these incidents happened. But one thing is clear.

The number of riders killed and seriously injured on our roads is far too high. Never has the slogan ‘Think Bike’ been a more appropriate message. For everyone.
