Keep the Race in its Place

Ride It Right the motorcycle safety initiative driven by motorcyclists will be attending the Road Safety Road Show, which will take place on Saturday 19th March at Lagan Valley Leisure Plex from 6 – 9pm.

The Ride It Right “Stress Bikes” will be in attendance with the message “whatever you ride, wherever you ride, whenever you ride and why you ride, don’t ride when stressed”, alongside the PSNI R1 Yamaha.

Our secondary message for other vehicle drivers regarding the risk of collision with motorcyclists due to factors such as “inattentional blindness”, distraction, or faulty judgement at intersections will be promoted to those attending.

Raising awareness of motorcycles to these issues is an aim for a greater reduction of motorcycle casualties, as collisions with other vehicles represents approximately 50% of motorcycle casualties.

The Road Safety Road Show is the conclusion of a ‘Road Safety Week’ launched next week in the centre of Lisburn next week.

The key message of this initiative with Lisburn PSNI in partnership with the Lisburn District Policing Partnership is, safer use of the roads.

Events throughout the week will include talks with young people through local schools and the provision of advice on speed, seatbelts and drink driving.

Cool FM’s Sonya Mac will be hosting the Road Safety Road Show which will be attended by the Environment Minister Edwin Poots, who is supporting the road safety message ‘Keep the race in its place’.

The event will include: Drift Car demonstrations; a mock road traffic accident demonstration during which the NI Fire and Rescue Service (NIFRS) will cut a passenger out of the car; Trial Stars motorbikes and local motor clubs that will have various cars on display.

It is anticipated that both the PSNI Evo VIII car and Bridgestone Ferrari will definitely prove to be a big attraction.

Lisburn DPP and Lisburn PSNI would like to see a good crowd joining them and their partner organisations at the Road Safety Roadshow on Saturday 19th March at Lagan Valley LeisurePlex from 6pm.
