New Safety campaign launched in Surrey


Surrey county council and Surrey police are encouraging drivers to look out for mopeds and motorbikes to keep young drivers safe. From July 18th the campaign will use 'hard hitting' images to urge motorists ‘Don’t just look for motorbikes. See them.’

 To help get the message across to younger riders, those who click through from the Facebook advert will be directed onto a page on the Drive SMART website – giving rider hints and tips, resources and links to useful biker and rider websites.

  “Our proactive approach to improving road safety throughout the past few years has had a significant impact on the overall number of fatalities in the county.'' Inspector Chris Colley, from Surrey's Roads Policing Unit.

“As more motorcyclists take to the roads in the warm summer weather, Surrey Roads Policing officers will again be working on initiatives aimed at further reducing road deaths, particularly in the 16-20 age group, through enforcement, education and discretion.

“Our advice to young bikers moped and motorcycle riders is to ride safely, wear protective clothing, and expect the unexpected. Our message to drivers is to look out for bikes.”
