Police launch motorbike-moped safety campaign

Police are launching a safety campaign targeting motorbikes and mopeds as they seek to cut down on road fatalities.

The week-long campaign begins on Monday and is the second of its kind so far this year.

Police said the campaign will focus on deterring offences, focusing on dangerous driving, speeding, driving without a licence and failing to wear a helmet.
