Police officers in Rancho Cordova are stepping up patrols in areas frequented by motorcyclists in an effort to reduce the number of motorcycle related deaths.
While motorcycle fatalities in Rancho Cordova dropped 37 percent between 2008 and 2010, they rebounded by 23 percent by 2012, according to a news release from the Rancho Cordova police.
The increased patrols are aimed at reducing this number by cracking down on people speeding, making illegal turns, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol or other committing other traffic violations while driving cars or motorcycles.
The specialized Motorcycle Safety Enforcement Operations will continue throughout the remainder of the summer to ensure that drivers and motorcyclists alike do their part to share the road and take responsibility for their actions.
