Rally for Scooter Safety

In 2014 biking enthusiasts of the British Virgin Islands, led by Shane Winter held a forum where they discussed issues surrounding biking and biker safety.

This had stem from the rise in motorcycle accidents and calls for restrictions on importation of motorcycles above an engine capacity of 125cc.

The group wanted to get the authorities to listen to their concerns.

And they did, as Third District Representative Julian Fraser, Minister for Communications and Works Mark Vanterpool and a senior member of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force Chief Inspector Kenrick Headley attended and pledged their support to the campaign.

Mr. Shane Winter is on the move again as since 2014 things seem not to have changed much and the steam is already picking up via social media.

This issue is very dear to Mr. Winter because he loves bikes, being an internationally recognized biker, has witnessed many deaths and near deaths and seen the benefits of protective gears.

But even more, he lives with the pains of near death experiences of a son.

Now, while plans for a much bigger forum to address concerns surrounding bikes and bikers are in the infancy stages, Winter calls on the community to band together.

This year has recorded quite a number of motorcycle accidents with one death.
