Unmarked police bikes 'out in force' over Festival of Motorcycling fortnight

Fri, 15 Aug 2014

Unmarked police bikes will be out in force during the Festival of Motorcycling in an effort to keep the Island's roads safe.

There will be a strong police presence with visitors and locals being asked to respect the roads, pay attention to speed limits and other motorists.

It's going to be a lot busier than previous events with an estimated 3000 extra bikes on the roads.

Unlike the TT the Mountain Road will remain open in both directions - with more police vehicles on patrol.

Sergeant Allan Thompson is head of the Roads Policing Unit - he says those caught breaking the law will be dealt with robustly.
