UGP and DOE urge motorcyclists to bike safely
Environment Minister Mark H Durkan has joined the Dundrod and District Motorcycle Club to appeal to motorcyclists to take care on the roads on the eve of the Ulster Grand Prix.
He said, “Those with a keen interest in road racing will no doubt get a great thrill out of seeing the top riders competing at high speeds. However, they need to be aware there is a big difference between racing behaviour on the circuit and everyday riding behaviour on the road.”
Minister Durkan added, “Motorcyclists – think ahead and be aware of the danger around every corner and every turn.
“Drivers – be bike aware. Take another look for motorcyclists and remember that underneath the helmet is someone’s father, mother, sister, brother, son, daughter, uncle, aunt, or best friend.”
