Two brand new motorbikes have been added to the current roster of bikes used by Dyfed-Powys Police. This brings the total to 14, with two of these being unmarked police bikes. Many members of the public living in the area have voiced their concerns about road safety. It is hoped the bikes will make the roads far safer, as they will be used for a variety of different purposes. The unmarked police bikes will be ridden by experienced police officers who will be watching out for drivers breaking the law.
While over £30,000 was spent on the two new additions, the investment is hoped to lead to a reduction in antisocial and dangerous driving behaviour. In addition, more motorcycles mean that the police will be more visible on the roads. Aside from the two unmarked bikes, there are 12 other motorcycles in the Dyfed-Powys police livery.
Clearly, the new purchases will be part of an overall campaign to make Dyfed-Powys roads much safer than they are at present. While improvements have been made, there is still a lot of work to do if the accident rate is to be reduced to a very low level, which is something that everyone in the local area would appreciate.
How can unmarked police bikes help reduce accidents?
People tend to slow down or stop doing anything illegal the moment they see a police car or motorbike. This means the police very often don’t stop as many people as they could do. For example, someone might be using a mobile phone at the wheel and put it down the moment they see police officers in the distance. By using unmarked bikes, the police can pull over anyone they see breaking the law or driving without due care and attention.
