Sports Bikes for Devon Police
9 April 2010, 14:01
Devon's motorcycle police wing have been loaned two high-performance bikes for six months, to get our attention.
The bikes will be taken to events across the county, rather than used for day-to-day policing, and it's hoped we'll be more likely to talk to the motorcycle officers as a result.
Although the number of collisions on our roads have gone down, MPC Paul White said: "In relation to those on the road already, the number of motorcyclists who are involved in collisions is still way too high, there is still a lot of work to do."
The bikes have been loaned for six months by Irelands Motorcycles in Barnstaple and Torbay Motorcycles in Newton Abbot.
Tell us what you think - Is this a good way to get our attention? What steps do you think should be taken to make motorcyclists safer? Add a comment below.
