LAKE ELSINORE, CA – On Wednesday, Feb. 28, sheriff’s deputies will conduct an enforcement operation across Lake Elsinore focused on motorcycle safety.
The operation will focus on motorcyclists as well as drivers. Safe riding and driving practices are “a shared responsibility” of all road users, the sheriff’s department said.
“Motorcycle riders do not have the same protections drivers and passengers do. Please share the road with motorcycles and drive safe,” Sgt. Foster said. “Motorcyclists may be difficult to spot, so be extra careful before changing lanes.” Motorcyclists should always wear: a U.S. DOT-compliant helmet with eye protection; leather or other sturdy clothing such as a jacket, pants and boots with nonskid soles and gloves; reflective strips or decals on clothing and on motorcycles to increase visibility.
“Ride defensively. Don’t assume a driver can see you. Avoid riding in a driver’s blind spot. Always keep your lights on, even during the day. Lastly, both drivers and riders should never drive/ride distracted or under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs,” the sheriff’s department reported. Funding for the enforcement operation is being funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
