Police help young bikers to take to road safely
STUDENTS in Doncaster got on their bikes to take part in a road safety initiative organised by Doncaster council and South Yorkshire police.
The BikeSafe scheme aims to help reduce the number of motorcycle rider casualties by promoting safer riding and is the first of a number of events in the borough.
BikeSafe is a practical educational course which enables Doncaster’s young people to experience riding a small powered two-wheel vehicle, such as a scooter, under the supervision of police motorcyclists.
Students are given advice about insurance, licenes, training courses, protective clothing and the law .
Mayor Martin Winter said: “For many students this will be their first experience of riding a motorcycle or scooter and it gives them the opportunity to experience this under professional supervision. The BikeSafe initiative helps to reduce the number of motorcycle accident casualties.”
