First Napa, then Pasadena, and now the city of Long Beach is cracking down on reckless motorcyclists in its so-called “Motorcycle Safety Enforcement Operation.” The operation took place on June 30th, and involved placing additional police enforcement on specific, targeted Long Beach streets where accidents commonly occur.
If you live in the Napa California region, and you drive a motorcycle, you will want to observe extra caution on Saturday, as the Napa Police Department is cracking down on motorcyclists who fail to observe the rules of the road. The Napa area has been a hotbed for motorcycle-related injuries and fatalities, so on Saturday, the police force will be performing an exhaustive motorcycle enforcement operation.
Motorcyclists are entitled to the same rights as other motorists when traveling the roadways, however, not all drivers always observe the rules of the road. If the driver of a car, truck or other passenger vehicle fails to properly yield the right of way to motorcyclists, it can potentially result in a serious motorcycle accident.
