Win a motorcycle with Essex Police

If you're not in it you can't win it!

ESSEX POLICE are offering young riders the chance to win a brand new motorcycle as part of its latest safety campaign.

The Safer Essex Roads Partnership’s Street Spirit campaign aims to reduce the risks that new riders face on the road by improving education.

To take part, the youths are required to watch five educational videos on topics including Getting on the Road, Protection, Road Skills, Maintenance and Road Safety Information and Research and complete a quiz. They will then be entered into a draw to win either a Yamaha MT-125, worth £4,299, or a Yamaha Aerox, worth £2,499, along with a year’s insurance and full protective gear.

Road traffic collision reduction manager for Essex Fire and Rescue Service Andy Stroulger commented: “The short videos give advice on getting on the road for the first time, highlight the benefits of wearing good protective clothing, provide tips on riding skills and road positioning, give advice on bike maintenance and encourage further training for those riders who go on to pass their full motorcycle tests.”

“We want to encourage a safer, more responsible approach to riding and it is hoped that over time, the campaign will lead to a reduction in collisions for these vulnerable young riders.”
