May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month
Rancho Cordova Police Department to Conduct Enforcement Operation and
Encourage Motorcycle Rider Training

The Rancho Cordova Police Department will be conducting a specialized Motorcycle Safety Enforcement Operation during the month of May in an effort to lower deaths and injuries.  Extra officers will be on duty patrolling areas frequented by motorcyclists and where motorcycle crashes occur.  Officers will be looking for violations made by drivers and riders alike that can lead to motorcycle crashes.  They will be cracking down on both those operating regular vehicles and motorcycles that are violating traffic safety laws.

Operations like this are aimed at curbing any more rises in motorcycle deaths and sending the numbers back downward.  Over the course of the past several years, motorcycle involved collisions have resulted in numerous fatal and injury crashes.

May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month – Refresher Training

Riders are urged to get training through the California Motorcyclist Safety Program. Information and training locations are available at http://www.californiamotorcyclist.com/  or 1-877 RIDE 411 (1-877-743-3411).

A special Refresher Training for Experienced Riders is being offered May 14th and 15th only.   To participate in the refresher training program, experienced riders with a motorcycle endorsement on their valid California driver’s license are invited to bring their street-legal motorcycle, along with proof of registration and insurance, to participating CMSP training sites.  Classes will run from 8:00 am to noon and 1:00 to 5:00 pm. Admission fees will vary between $65 to $100, depending upon location. More information about CMSP’s experienced rider refresher training classes can be found at http://cmsp.msi5.com/

Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The message to all drivers and motorcyclists is: share in the responsibility and do your part by safely “sharing the road.”
