Complaints have been made regarding illegal motorcycling in the Wrexham area causing police to campaign for safer driving among motorcyclists. The Safer Summer campaign has been launched by police who will make use of unmarked motorbikes to follow illegal motorcyclists should they drive off-road. The unmarked bikes are now policing areas where the culprits have been spotted in order to issue enforcement action. Various complaints were made to the police by members of the public who were concerned for the effect the dangerous riders were having on the environment and who also expressed worry that the bikers could be putting people’s lives at risk. One bike has been seized as part of the new measures and was found to be stolen. Many motorcyclists have been seen driving without head gear and many have been spotted driving antisocially off-road. Sergeant Williams has expressed concern over the safety of the public and initially hoped to prevent these behaviours by issuing appropriate advice. However, it has become necessary to take enforcement action after many motorcyclists have been excessively violating the rules of the road.
Dangers of reckless driving
Reckless driving and illegal motorcycling can cause a serious accident on the road and can potentially cause a fatality. Motorcyclists and drivers should always respect other road users in order to create a safer environment for vulnerable groups such as young children, pedestrians and cyclists. Failure to drive under the speed limit can increase the risk of serious injury or fatality, particularly when a vulnerable road user is involved. Although many exhibit safe behaviours on the road, there are still many who do not uphold the law when driving or biking.
