Cheshire Police urge motorcyclists to take extra care this summer

 

Cheshire Police are urging motorcyclists to take extra care on the roads this summer.

A total of seven motorcyclists have already been killed as a result of collisions on Cheshire roads this year.

Sergeant Rick Weaver of Cheshire Police Roads Policing Unit said: "Motorcyclists are among the most vulnerable of road users and the number of fatal collisions this year highlights this fact.

"We are urging all motorcyclists to take extra care while out on the roads and to take responsibility for their own safety."

Police are also encouraging motorcyclists to consider further training as a way of improving their riding skills and reducing their risk of being involved in a collision.

Sgt Weaver said: "We encourage all motorcyclists to consider further training, no matter how experienced they are.

"Cheshire Police continue to support the BikeSafe initiative, which runs a number of workshops aimed at improving the skills of motorcyclists and making riding safer."

Cheshire Police are currently running an enforcement operation in partnership with North Wales Police which focuses on motorcycle safety.

Operation Caesar II provides a high policing presence across the county in a bid to reduce the number of motorcycle casualties.

Officers will be stopping and engaging with motorcyclists who commit moving traffic offences such as speeding and dangerous riding as well as anti-social offences such as excessive noise.

They will also be dealing with other road users who endanger the lives of themselves and others.
