Whittier Police Cracking Down on Motorcycle Endangerment This July

The remainder of the month of July will see officers with the Whittier Police Department cracking down on those persons whose actions contribute to safety threats among motorcyclists.  The operation is set to target such things as drunk driving, improper lane changing, and speeding.  Special attention will also be placed on motorcyclists who neglect to wear a helmet and any driver whose actions run afoul of the mandated right of way.  Since 2009, Whittier has seen 87 motorcycle accidents that contributed to three fatalities and 78 injuries.  The police believe that a better economy brings more new riders out on the road, and they suggest that such parties get the proper training from a class like the California Motorcyclist Safety Program.
