Operation Close Pass

Our road safety team regularly takes part in an operation called Close Pass with colleagues from Cheshire Police to demonstrate to drivers and riders how to stay safe on the roads with 'close pass' mats and other road safety aids.

Covert officers from Cheshire Police will ride along the identified hot spot areas while wearing body worn cameras. Uniformed officers will then stop any drivers identified as having driven too close to the covert officers. Those drivers will be educated on how to pass riders safely and why this is so important - with officers enforcing the law where necessary.

Riders will also be invited to stop as part of the initiative to talk about how to keep themselves safe on their journeys, the importance of being visible to other road users and the significance of courteous riding.
