Motorcycles

In 2012 the States of Jersey Police launched Operation Road Runner, a road safety initiative aimed at reducing the numbers of collisions on our roads.

In 2014 that initiative will continue but with an added emphasis on two wheelers.

In 2012 96 motorcyclists were injured on our roads, 25 of them seriously.
Last Year 76 motorcyclists received minor injuries (inc. 28 moped riders)
and 16 motorcyclists were seriously injured  (inc. 2 moped riders). 
 
The campaign hopes to reduce that number by encouraging riders to take responsibility for their safety and the safety of others, but also the car community to 'Think Bike' when they are driving.
The campaign is also being supported by local bike shops who are going to be offering various deals throughout the year.
 
The Force's road safety officer will also be visiting schools to talk moped safety to students.
safety tips
 
• Make yourself visible.
• Always wear protective clothing, even for short trips.
• Slow down for approaching bends – accelerate out, but keep to the speed limit. If you're going too fast, don't panic, lift your head and look out of the bend in the direction you want to go.
• Constantly monitor your riding and think about what you are doing.
