Police will be using helicopters, cameras and unmarked cars and motorcycles in a campaign starting this weekend to stem the numbers of motorcyclists killed or seriously injured .
North Wales Police, in conjunction with Cheshire and Derbyshire Constabularies, will join forces in a sustained campaign of enforcement aimed at reducing motorcycle deaths and serious injuries .
The three forces experience high numbers of motorcyclists because of the challenging nature of the roads in areas of outstanding natural beauty such as Snowdonia, Cat and Fiddle and the Peak District.
Chief Inspector Gary Ashton from North Wales Police’s Public Security Division said: “Whilst the vast majority of motorcyclists ride appropriately, many riders choose to use the roads as a racetrack, committing serious breaches of road safety legislation, such as speeding and riding dangerously thereby putting themselves and other road users at risk of death or life changing injury."
Officers have promised to deal robustly with motorcyclists for the most serious infringements. Those who set out to have complete disregard for the law expose themselves to the most serious sanctions the law can provide.
