Motorists have been asked to "look out" for motorcyclists at junctions.

The Road Safety Authority says 21 per cent of all road deaths so far this year have been motorcyclists.

11 bikers have died in the last 4 months - 5 of whom died in March.

Gardaí and the RSA are reminding bikers to wear personal protective equipment, while asking other motorists to look out for motorcyclists at junctions.
