Police launch two week biker campaign


Officers from Cumbria Constabulary are taking part in a two-week campaign aimed at motorcycle and pedal cycle safety.

The 2 Wheel campaign begins today, Monday 5th April, for two weeks with enforcement being carried out in the second week.

The campaign aims to raise awareness and educate road users and riders generally on how to improve driver/rider behaviour, which in turn reduces the number of fatal and serious collisions.

During the campaign officers will be looking to educate and enforce those putting others at risk.

Advice for drivers

- Ensure you give space, the recommended safe passing distance is 1.5m.

- Only overtake when its safe to do so.

- At junctions or when undertaking a manoeuvre, think bike.

Advice for those on two wheels

- Ensure your bike or motorcycle is road worthy, check your light, tyres, reflectors and brakes.

- Be seen, make sure your wearing bright clothing and protective clothing.

- Take care when on the road, give timely and clear signals and look out for other drivers who might not have seen you.

- Take care when overtaking and on country roads. 

- Ride to the weather conditions, slow down and stay safe.

Temporary Inspector Steve Vickers, from Cumbria Police’s Mobile Support Group, said:

“Motorcyclists and pedal cyclists are some of the most vulnerable on our roads, and it’s important that all road users take steps to reduce the danger to themselves and others.

“Those on two wheels must also consider their own safety and making sure they are wearing the right equipment.

“All road users should take care and recognise those that are more vulnerable on our roads. It’s important that we all educate ourselves to help reduce the tragic consequences that can happen.”
