TT 2017 road safety campaign launched

Road safety officers will be on board ferries during TT fortnight to encourage visitors to use the Island's highways safely.

The move is part of the Government's annual TT road safety campaign, encouraging those using the Island's roads during the fortnight to ride within their capabilities.

A series of hard-hitting images will also be placed in prominent locations, including at the Sea Terminal, TT campsites and around the Mountain Course.

Visiting bikers will also be given a safety leaflet during their journey to the Island with potentially life-saving advice.

Police are also warning that unmarked patrols will be enforcing the rules of the road throughout the fortnight, which gets underway next weekend.
