Dashcam footage released as part of the 2 Wheels campaign

  • Officers supporting 2 Wheels campaign release footage

  • Video shows a collision involving a motorbike and a car

  • The head on collision occurred in Stevenage

As part of the current 2 Wheels campaign to improve the safety of motorcyclists on our roads, the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit are releasing footage of a collision involving a motorcyclist in Stevenage.

The head-on crash happened at around 5pm on 23 March 2019 on Broadwater Crescent and involved a motorbike and a car. The rider was nearly twice the drink drive limit.

He was critically injured and airlifted to hospital.

The car was travelling within the speed limits and the two people in it were not injured.

The video can be viewed here.

PC David Burstow investigated the case and said: “We are releasing this footage in the hope it brings some reality, particularly to motorcyclists, of the serious consequences of being over the limit.

“The rider put himself, the occupants of the car and other road users at risk and this is not acceptable.

“I appreciate he is now paying for his actions not only through the courts but through the injuries he has suffered. The message from us is clear – do not drink and drive.”

At court in July, the motorcyclist was disqualified from driving for 18 months.
