Police are urging everyone traveling to and from the International North West 200 circuit this year to stay safe on the roads.

Causeway Coast and Glens Chief Inspector Mark McClarence said: “This is always a popular event in the motorcycling calendar attracting thousands of visitors every year to the North Coast.

“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. 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 on the road network throughout the week 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.”
