    LA County Sheriffs to Hold Motorcycle Safety Enforcement Operation in West Hollywood

    - Advertisement -

    LA County Sheriffs will hold a Motorcycle Safety Enforcement Operation and have extra deputies on patrol February 7th from 6 a.m. to 2 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:

    Drivers

    • 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.

    Motorcyclists

    • 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.

    The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will hold other motorcycle safety enforcement operations throughout the month of May.

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

    The purpose of Los Angeles Regional Crime Stoppers is to prevent and reduce crime, by forming a partnership among the community, law enforcement and the media to offer anonymity and cash rewards to anyone providing information leading to an arrest.

    Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy.

    West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station polices the City of West Hollywood and the unincorporated communities of Franklin Canyon, Universal City (which includes Universal Theme Park, Studios, and Citywalk), and the Federal Enclave in West Los Angeles.
