Motorcycle Safety Campaign

internet_web_bannerSouth Australian Police are conducting a motorcycle safety campaign in the Adelaide Hills which has resulted in the fining of 226 speedsters – both motorbikes and cars.

Police said the ongoing Operation Safe Hills, launched on December 8, aimed to reduce motorcycle accidents through the hills.

Following the deaths of two motorcyclists in Adelaide’s southern suburbs last weekend, police detected eight motorcycle riders speeding over the weekend, as well as six car drivers.

Two motorcyclists were caught traveling at more than 40km/h above the speed limit.

Superintendent Bob Fauser said, those speeding were not only putting their lives at risk but also the lives of other road users.

“They can expect a knock on the door from a police officer who will issue them with an immediate licence disqualification,” he said.

“Mobile safety cameras will continue to be deployed in the Adelaide Hills so if you are one of those irresponsible motorists placing lives at risk by speeding you run a high risk of getting caught.

“If irresponsible motorcyclists will not consider their own safety, then they should consider the impact on their families if they should be killed or seriously injured.”
