Suffolk Police are giving motorcyclists across the county an opportunity to improve their skills and become better and safer riders by attending a motorcycle course.
In conjunction with Suffolk County Council, Suffolk Police is running a series of ‘Bikesafe’ motorcycle workshops in a bid to decrease the number of motorcyclists being killed or seriously injured in the county.
Bikesafe is a nationally recognised police-run biking initiative focusing on education, and aims to improve rider awareness and rider ability. In 2008 it won the prestigious Motorcycle Industry sponsored Prince Michael International Road Safety Award for achievement and innovation.
In 2010, 20 people were killed on Suffolk’s roads, 4 of which were motorcyclists (20 per cent). In 2009 this figure was over a quarter at 26 per cent.
The 2010 Suffolk Show gets underway at Trinity Park tomorrow, Wednesday 2 June, and police are reminding motorists there may be some congestion in the area over the next two days due to the volume of traffic heading to the area.
While in recent years there have been relatively few traffic problems, Inspector Des Pooley of Suffolk’s Road Policing Unit is asking drivers to take some simple measures to ensure all goes smoothly.
