    The Oxnard Police Department will be conducting a specialized Motorcycle Safety Enforcement Operation on Sunday, June 23, 2019, in an effort to lower deaths and injuries.  Extra officers will be on-duty patrolling areas frequented by motorcyclists and where motorcycle crashes occur.  Officers will be looking for violations made by drivers and riders alike that can lead to motorcycle crashes.  They will be cracking down on both those operating regular vehicles and motorcycles that are violating traffic safety laws.

    Motorcycle fatalities jumped dramatically in California by over 28 percent from a decade low of 352 in 2010.  In 2013, 453 motorcyclists lost their lives, which is at a five year high.  California collision data reveals that primary causes of motorcycle-involved crashes include speeding, unsafe turning, and impairment due to alcohol and other drugs by both riders and drivers alike. 

    Operations like this are aimed at curbing any more rises in motorcycle deaths and sending the numbers back downward.  Over the course of the past three years, motorcycle-involved collisions have resulted in four fatalities and 93 injury crashes in Oxnard alone. 

    Safety tips for riders – See and Be Seen:

    Use your lane position to increase visibility; change lanes only when there is ample room

    Match your speed to surrounding traffic

    Always wear a DOT-compliant helmet and brightly colored, protective clothing

    Ride with lights on during daylight hours

    Safety tips for drivers – Share the Road:

    Look twice for motorcyclists, especially when entering the roadway, turning, or changing lanes

    Motorcyclist are allowed in HOV lanes unless prohibited by signage
