The summer months often bring along an increase in motorcycle accidents.
Since motorcyclists are less protected than car drivers, they are more likely to suffer fatal consequences in accidents.
A safety campaign was launched on 20 June 2020, and police carried out an increased number of motorcycle checks since then. Police mainly focused on speed violations, registration papers, state of the vehicle, and of course helm conformity.
Out of the 500 controls done so far, 200 revealed violations in the categories mentioned above.
