Motorists urged to ‘stay safe’ on roads in lead up to NW200

1 Mins read

Police are urging motorcyclists travelling to and from the North West 200 circuit this year to stay safe on the roads.

Speaking ahead of the top motorcycling event, Superintendent John Magill said: “This is a fantastic event for the North Coast and attracts thousands of visitors every year.  The scenic routes in and around this area always prove popular and are a firm favourite for motorcycling enthusiasts.

“While it is easy to get caught up in the excitement of race week, my message to those enthusiasts and supporters is to please leave the racing to the professionals. Sadly we have seen in recent years just how easily people can lose their lives on the roads as a result of excessive speed or dangerous riding. Too many families are still living with the consequences and this is why road safety has got to be everyone’s number one priority.

“With more motorcyclists out and about in the lead up to and during race week, other road users need to be more alert to the presence of bikes on the roads, particularly at junctions. And the riders themselves need to make sure they stick to the rules of the road and give due consideration to others. Our colleagues in Road Policing, alongside local officers, will be out there too making sure that the roads are safe for everyone.

“Finally I hope everyone enjoys race week and best of luck to all the riders taking part. Bike Safe everyone.”
