MRASA annual Toy Run 2014

The Motorcycle Riders Association of South Australia annual Toy Run has been held for more than 30 years and the Motor Accident Commission (MAC) is pleased to again support the ride this year.

The aim of the Toy Run is to raise awareness and celebrate motorcycling, with a strong focus on assisting under-privileged children during the festive season. During the event, MAC promotes safe motorcycling behaviour, particularly wearing the right clothing while riding.

Motorcyclists have a higher risk of death or serious injury than all other road users. In South Australia, motorcyclists on average account for just above 3% of all registered vehicles but around 15% of all fatalities (2009-2013).

“Motorcyclists are more vulnerable on our roads because they more exposed, so wearing the right gear can be the difference between a nasty fall and injuries that prevent you from riding again,” MAC General Manager Road Safety Michael Cornish said.

“MAC urges motorcyclists to do everything they can to help ensure they can be more easily seen by others. This means wearing bright, reflective clothing including your helmet.

“When other road users around you are focused elsewhere on busy roads, you can take some positive steps towards boosting your visibility.”

The State Government recently announced the installation of motorcycle barriers beneath existing guard rails on 14 South Australian roads with the help of a $1.4 million investment from MAC’s Road Safety Infrastructure Fund. These barriers are designed to absorb the impact and reduce the nature of injuries in the event of a crash.

The Toy Run is on Sunday 14 December, departing from Victoria Park in Adelaide at 11am and proceeding to Callington Oval via Hutt St, Glen Osmond Road and the South Eastern Freeway. For more information, visit the MRASA website mrasa.asn.au/toyrun.shtml
