Nearly 2,000 motorcyclists given high visibility clothing
MORE than 2,000 motorcylists have received high-visibility jackets as part of a police initiative to cut the number of crashes on Notts roads.
Police have been stopping people not wearing high-visibility clothing and handing out reflective backpacks and jackets as part of the 'Think Bike' campaign.
Between January and March 2008, five motorcyclists were killed on the county's roads and 36 people were seriously injured.
The scheme has been launched by the Notts Road Safety Partnership .

Chief Inspector Andrew Charlton, Head of Roads Policing Unit at Nottinghamshire Police, said: "We are pleased with the uptake from bikers who are obviously keen to increase their visibility. Our officers and front counter staff have worked hard to make this campaign a success."
