Two articles are features: one, "the problem in Lincolnshire" discusses accident prevention measures throughout the county, and the other "a sort of progress" describes a training scheme being run by the Cheshire police. The first article describes police publicity exhibitions at motor cycle race meetings at Cadwell Park and "better bike" discussion evenings held in school halls. Advisory "safe rider" roadside checks were also held during the spring of 1978. Speed enforcement checks were also held during race meetings with further press and TV publicity. A twelve month survey of accidents within the county is being used to identify further areas for action. The second article describes the setting up and operation of the safe motor cycling scheme in Cheshire. This scheme, largely operated by civilians but under general police supervision, has been used to train all types and ages of motor cyclists. Advice is given on teaching methods and the organisation needed to run such a scheme. Although there is no course examination, the author claims that all their pupils subsequently pass the department of transport driving test. /TRRL/
