Merseyside Police 'meet and greet' at biker gatherings
As part of an ongoing initiative to advise motorcyclists about safety issues, Merseyside Police and RideSafe BackSafe have heralded their visits to local ‘bike meets’ a great success.
Thousands of motorcyclists in the area meet regularly at cafes and pubs and police motorcyclists are now joining them to discuss safety issues, share publicity campaigns and promote the benefits of rider training.
Mike Abram, roads policing officer, says: “This demonstrates that engaging with motorcyclists, rather than simply having a police presence at a social gathering, is very effective. Bikers now approach us in a relaxed atmosphere and show a great deal of interest in the knowledge and guidance we want to share.”
