Police lay down the law in Lincolnshire
Lincolnshire police has launched a combined enforcement and education operation aimed at increasing the safety of motorcyclists.
Operation Octane and Operation Stealth will run throughout Lincolnshire to ensure that riders enjoy the county’s roads in safety.
The police forces of Lincolnshire, Humberside and South Yorkshire are working together to reduce the number of people killed and seriously injured on the roads. Police officers will work across borders to bring an educational message to riders and, where necessary, enforcement will take place to prosecute motorcyclists riding dangerously.
Sgt Chris Dennett, of Lincolnshire police, said: “We welcome careful and considerate bikers but the small minority who wilfully ride at excessive speed, cause nuisance and represent a danger to other roads users as well as themselves will be targeted and, where appropriate, will be put before the Courts. Our aim is to make the roads safer for all.”
