Though British-based campaign is for the benefit of bicyclists, the same mentality can be applied to motorcyclists. A similar campaign, albeit with much more dramatic effect, has been created specifically for motorcycles by Australia’s government.

Obviously these campaigns are made to keep motorists aware of two-wheelers, and don’t necessarily apply to us riders. Still, dothetest.co.uk is a great tool for demonstrating how most of us are not entirely aware of our surroundings, even though as motorcyclists (and bicyclists, too!) we should be super-keen of our environment.

Thanks to dothetest.co.uk I learned I’m not as sharp as I used to be, and can no longer rely on my powers of observation honed from years of criminal justice studies.

If nothing else, this is a great two minute timewaster.
