A campaign has been launched by Humberside Police and its partner agencies to reduce the number of motorcycle casualties on roads around Driffield.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council has provided funding to the police to further support Operation Achilles, which specifically works to improve road safety for motorcyclists.
The force, supported by Safer Roads Humber, will be using marked and unmarked patrol cars and an unmarked camera bike to help capture evidence of dangerous driving.
According to police figures between 2004 and 2011 the force has reduced the yearly number of bikers killed or seriously injured on the roads in East Yorkshire have reduced to 101 from 150.
Other tactics including highly visible traffic patrols will be used on roads with especially high rates of death or injury.
However bike safety workshops will run from April to September for riders who wish to learn more about road safety. Visit www.bikesafe.co.uk
