Derbyshire Police have launched their annual motorbike operation. They will be patrolling popular biking roads where collisions are most common, over the next few months.
It's ran by Derby and Derbyshire Road Safety Partnership and aims to reduce the number of motorcyclists killed or seriously injured on the counties roads.
117 bikers were killed or seriously injured in Derbyshire in 2012 compared to 141 in 2011.
