Eye-catching bike safety signs in Northumberland a success

Eye-catching bike safety signs a success

A road safety campaign launched in Spring by the Safer Northumberland Partnership to warn bikers about the dangers of speeding and cornering has been a success.

For the past three years, the partnership has worked to lower accidents involving motorcyclists.

Signs warning bikers about the dangers of speeding and cornering were put up earlier this year on rural roads in locations where police have received reports of dangerous driving.

The eye-catching yellow signs, designed to make bikers and drivers think twice about speeding, were placed in accident black-spots in Berwick, Alnwick, Morpeth and West Northumberland.
