Here are a couple of facts about driving motorcycles in Jamaica.

- At the start of the year, National Security Minister Robert Montague said that the Government would get tougher on motorcyclists who continue to flout the road code.

- Motorcycle drivers and their pillion continue to ignore the laws that make it mandatory for them to wear helmets while on the road.

- Some perform daring acts while driving on busy roadways, for example, riding on the rear wheel, and darting in and out of traffic at great speed.

- The victims of motorcycle crashes account for a significant and growing proportion of the more than 1,300 patients who annually end up at some small hospital's accident and emergency department.

Take a look at these that our photographer caught on Corporate Area roads yesterday.
