Police are issuing a reminder to motorcyclists across Suffolk that they have the opportunity to improve their riding skills and to have better awareness and ability while on the road at ‘Safe Rider’ motorcycle workshops, which begin next month.
Safe Rider is a joint initiative between Suffolk and Norfolk Constabularies aimed at reducing the number of motorcycle casualties across the counties.
Last year 18 people were killed on Suffolk’s roads, three of which were motorcyclists. To date in 2019, four people have died on the county’s roads, none of which were motorcyclists.
The two-day workshops will run from April through to October, the months when it is considered the number of motorcyclists taking to the roads increases due to more clement weather.
They are aimed at all fully qualified riders who want to improve their skills to become better and safer riders.
