Be Wiser Insurance

A new initiative in order to curb the bad behaviour of some motorbike riders in Kent has been set up by the local police force, according to a local news source.

News Shopper has reported that the scheme will see the local constabulary team up with a number of bodies across the reason in order to improve road safety.

It may be that a reduction in accidents in the region leads to cheaper car insurance policies for some drivers, as cover firms could view them as less of a threat.

Alex Jones, Kent Police inspector, remarked that the coalition will draw on its "expertise and resources to reduce casualties".

"Kent Police and its partners want to work with motorcyclists to ensure that they can enjoy riding their bikes safely all year round," said the official.

Meanwhile, Road Transport has stated that officials in the region are to crack down on drivers parking illegally near an industrial estate in Ashford.
