MORE than 300 motorcyclists were caught breaching road safety laws by a police enforcement campaign last month.
The ‘Think’ campaign targeted 302 motorcyclists across Cambridgeshire as well as 180 motorists who were caught using a mobile at the wheel or not wearing their seat belts.
Police stopped 172 motorcyclists during the campaign that ran throughout April handing 37 penalty notices and 34 speed warnings.
Two of the vehicles stopped had been in a serious collision and the campaign also led to two arrests.
Inspector Bob Turner said: “Road safety is vital for motorcyclists and it’s disappointing that so many are still riding too fast or being fined.
“While traffic officers were out on the county’s roads there were still motorists flouting the law.
“Roads can be a dangerous place when the law is not respected and adhered to. If we are to reduce the number of fatalities and casualties on the county’s roads it is vital people comply with the law.”
