Safety advice for bikers

BIKERS will be targeted by police officers in a bid to reduce the numbers involved in collisions.

Officers will be focusing on bikes and scooter riders commuting to work, to pass on safety tips.

Sergeant Graham Sayner said: “Officers will be looking to interact with motorcyclists, with the emphasis being on improving rider safety by passing on words of advice and information about further training if required.

“There have been a number of collisions in recent months where riders have sustained head injuries through not having their crash helmets securely fastened.”
