Motorcycle Safety Enforcement Operation to be Conducted in Loma Linda on May 14th

May 4, 2022 

San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, Central Station is holding a Motorcycle Safety Enforcement Operation on May 14, 2022

City of Loma Linda, Calif. – San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, Central Station will have extra officers on patrol May 14, 2022 from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. looking specifically for violations made by drivers and motorcycle riders 

The top primary crash factors for motorcycles are unsafe speed, improper turning, right-of-way violations, driving under the influence and unsafe lane changes. Speeding is the most common, accounting for nearly a third of all crashes in the state.

To help protect you and your family, keep the following tips in mind while driving or riding:
• Always check twice for motorcycles in your mirrors and blind spots.
• Use your signal when changing lanes.
• Never follow a motorcycle too closely. Always keep a safe distance.
• When at an intersection, allow enough space before turning.
• Always wear a DOT compliant helmet and protective gear.
• Consider adding reflective tape to make it easier for other drivers to see you.
• Always keep your lights on, even during the day.
• Don’t assume drivers see you: signal well in advance before changing lanes and watch for turning vehicles.
• Although lane splitting is legal, the practice is not encouraged at high speeds in free-flowing traffic.

Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
