Just in time for Motorcycle Safety Awareness month, police in the city of Folsom plan to carry out a Motorcycle Safety Enforcement Operation up until the end of May. Extra attention will be paid to those sections of the city where crashes of such vehicles tend to occur with greater regularity. Not only will police be on the lookout for motorcyclists engaged in potentially dangerous behaviors, but they’ll also be keeping an eye on other drivers whose actions could compromise the safety of riders. Particular attention will be placed on such activities as speeding and driving while intoxicated. Illegal turns will also receive focus. A California Office of Traffic Safety grant provided the funds necessary for the crackdown.
