We’re committed to making motorcycling safer across Essex.
That means reducing the number of crashes, collisions and
casualties on the county’s roads.
Last year we recorded 7 motorcyclist fatalities on our roads – a
figure we’re working to reduce.
We have a team of experienced police
motorcyclists to educate riders, tackle dangerous driving and make
the roads a safer place for motorcyclists.
Essex Police currently has 10 motorcyclists, nine marked and two
unmarked bikes patrolling the county to help reduce the number of
motorcyclists killed and seriously injured on the roads of
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.
