Lincolnshire Police to focus on motorcyclists in bid to reduce road deaths




Police officers in Lincolnshire will be out on the county’s roads in a dedicated effort to reduce the numbers of road casualties and anti-social driving among motorcyclists.

So far this year there have been 39 deaths on the county's roads and 10 of those have been motorcycle fatalities.

The 2Wheels campaign will run from Monday (September 9) to September 22.

Inspector Ewan Gell, of the Roads Policing Unit, said: “Lincolnshire attracts motorcyclists from near and far as they come to experience our rural roads, attend organised 'bike night' events, the racing at Cadwell Park or visit the coast, particularly during the evenings or weekends. We welcome them but want to make sure they and others around them ride safely.

“As part of the 2Wheels campaign we will have a highly visibly police presence on our roads and will be enforcing the fatal4 - drink/drug driving, mobile phone use, speeding and not wearing a seatbelt – and our officers will be out talking to motorcyclists about defensive riding, kit, and generally being safe.

“Of course, if we see anybody breaking the law we will take appropriate action.”
