Lets just be clear the public intent of Derbyshire IAM and DCC bikesafe scheme is at odds with the Derbyshire Police yearly harassment of bikers and proposed use of stingers and drones against motorcyclists.
As soon as any force decides to use stingers against two wheels, which is not acceptable in any circumstance then any argument they have that they are working towards road safety is voided.
They are risking lives not protecting them. Do not be niaive.
The currant stopping of motorcycles in numbers far beyond any other vehicle is for increasing revenue, as bikes are an easy target, and due to the discriminatory attitudes of county councillors and senior police officers.
There are a few similar forces throughout Britain, North Wales is another example of anti bike tactics.
As you all know I fight any discrimination and yes that includes that against motorcyclists.
Do not be sheep and say ‘they are just doing their jobs’ they absolutely are not. Easy money and each traffic offence is recorded as if the force achieved a criminal conviction. They then get increased budgets.
Corruption yet again, victimisation of yet another sector of society.
