Safer Motorcycling

We’re committed to making motorcycling safer across Essex.

That means reducing the number of crashes, collisions and casualties on the county’s roads.

Police officers on motorcycles

Last year we recorded 17 motorcyclist fatalities on our roads – a figure we’re working to reduce.

Police motorcyclists

We have a team of experienced police motorcyclists spread across the county to educate riders, tackle dangerous driving and make the roads a safer place for motorcyclists.

Essex Police currently has 12 motorcyclists based at our five traffic bases in Laindon, Rayleigh, Bocking, Chigwell and Chelmsford.

We have nine marked and two unmarked bikes patrolling the county to help reduce the number of motorcyclists killed and seriously injured on the roads of Essex.

We’re doing this in three ways:

  • Education – Helping motorcyclists become safer riders by passing on our officers’ skills and experience and providing riders with further training if necessary.
  • Enforcement – Taking action against careless or dangerous driving, excess speed, vehicles involved in a crime and riders without tax or insurance.
  • Engineering – Working with Essex County Council to make problem roads a safer place.

You’ll find out more about each on the next few pages.
