On2Wheels

Overview

Chevrons

On2Wheels is our new campaign to cut motorcycle and scooter accidents in Brent down to size. 

We're teaching riders how to stay safe on the roads by asking them to ensure they always:

  • Look and look again
  • Be bright and cover up
  • See and be seen
Look and look again Be bright cover up See and be seen

 

The messages highlight how just a few simple steps can help motorcyclists and scooter riders reduce their risks of near misses or serious collisions on the road.

And show how wearing the right clothes can prevent serious injuries if they're unlucky enough to be knocked off their motorbikes or scooters.

On2Wheels is the latest addition to the Brent Safer Roads initiative to ensure everyone looks out for themselves and others as they travel around the borough.
