Bikers Urged To Slow Down
12:22pm 20th April 2014
Police are reminding motorcyclists to take extra care on the roads over the Easter bank holiday weekend.
It's as the number of riders killed in crashes in North Yorkshire rose 200 per cent last year.
Craig Miller, Crew Mananger with North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, is advising bikers to stay within their limits when they are out and about.
He said: "We've got the Moors and the Dales so we are blessed with some really good motorcycling roads.
"I think what we are trying to get across to people is know your limits.
"Know the limits of the bike; make sure the bike is road worthy and make sure the equipment that you have got on to protect yourself is suitable.
"Just ride within your limits."
