Extra Speed Enforcement Around Silverstone For British Super Bike Championship This Weekend

Published: 25th September 2009 14:05
Officers from Northamptonshire’s Casualty Reduction Partnership will be carrying out extra speed enforcement this weekend to coincide with the British Superbike Championship at Silverstone.
Police Sergeant Jon Hodgson said: "Our mobile enforcement camera vans will be in the area, as well as marked and unmarked police motorcycles. Sadly, five motorcyclists have died on Northamptonshire’s roads during 2009. We want everyone to enjoy the championship over the weekend, and for the safety of all road users we would urge motorcyclists to save the racing for the track and ride in an appropriate and considerate way."
Motorcyclists in Northamptonshire are also encouraged to take part in the partnership’s BikeKraft scheme, which offers free riding skills and information sessions. For more information visit: www.bikekraft.co.uk
