POLICE have launched a combined enforcement and education operation aimed at increasing the safety of motorcycle riders in the county.

Now the motorcycle season has started Operation Octane and Operation Stealth will run throughout Lincolnshire.

Police officers will bring an educational message to riders and where necessary enforcement will take place to ensure those riders who treat the roads as a ‘race track’ will be prosecuted for their actions.

Sergeant Chris Dennett said: “We welcome careful and considerate bikers but the small minority who wilfully ride at excessive speed, cause nuisance and represent a danger to other roads users as well as themselves will be targeted and where appropriate, will be put before the courts. Our aim is to make the roads safer for all.”
