Learning a new movement is something we are able to achieve quickly and most of us take for granted. As children we are constantly learning new motor skills such as: writing (on walls!), dressing, catching or riding a bike. Even as adults we retain the ability to learn novel tasks.
“Injuries to motorcyclists are out of proportion to their presence on our roads”.
No more so is this statement true than when it is applied to young moped users, particularly 16-year-olds who haven’t even finished growing up yet. And with another moped fatality emblazoned across our news pages, albeit because of trolling, should the government reconsider allowing people as young as 16 to ride scooters on British roads, and with only a provisional licence?
