Essex Police motorcyclists have been sharing their expertise
with young scooter and motorbike riders in Harlow.
A team of motorcyclists visited Harlow College to work with
students who have recently started riding and educate them about
road safety, driving behaviour and basic mechanics.
In the film above we follow Pc Jonathan Harman and his
colleagues from Essex Police’s Operational Policing Command as they
take students on an assessed ride around the town and run through
the importance of wearing appropriate clothing and checking tyres,
brakes and steering.
Pc Harman said: “It’s very important we get involved in this
quite simply because these riders could be our casualties of
tomorrow. It’s important we get the right messages home at this
early stage of their riding career.”
