Andrew Knowles, one of our volunteer speakers from Warrnambool was recently interviewed by The Warrnambool Standard. Riding his motorcycle home from work in Warrnambool in July, 2011, Andrew was hit at a roundabout – a crash that has shaped his past five years.
“I got partway through the roundabout and I got T-boned by a ute with a bullbar,” Andrew said.
Now a speaker with Road Trauma Support Services Victoria, helping to educate traffic offenders. He said many drivers don’t realise how vulnerable motorcycle riders are on the road.
A timely reminder with 43 motorcyclist losing their lives so far this year, an increase from 2015 of 95 per cent with 22 fatalities.
