Sussex campaign focuses on motorcycle safety

A film showing a young boy creating his own motorcycle experience is the focus of a road safety campaign in Sussex.

The Sussex Safer Roads Partnership (SSRP) described Stay a Hero, Stay Safe as a celebration of motorcycling showing bikers as role models.

The film depicts a young boy turning his own pedal bike into a motorcycle so he can be like his father, with the aid of skittles, an umbrella and torches.

SSRP manager, Ken Seymour, said he hoped it would help save lives.

"Despite motorcyclists being a small proportion of road users, they make up a large percentage of casualties across Sussex," he said.

"Stay a Hero deliberately avoids laying blame of any sort and isn't your usual shocking public service film.

"We hope that it will connect with our biker community, generate discussion and help to save lives on our roads."
