Bikers are being warned of the dangers of the Mountain Course in the run up to this year's TT.

 

The Roads Policing Unit and the Department of Infrastructure are looking to reduce the number of serious crashes in the weeks before the races.

 

Police will be watching for careless driving, particularly over the Mountain Road, whilst vehicle examiners will be at the Grandstand to ensure motorcycles are safe to be on the road.

 

The latest campaign will run over the Easter and May bank holidays, focusing on preventing accidents, rather than having to punish those who take risks
