Thirteen citations written 

Chino police issued 13 citations July 23 during a motorcycle safety enforcement operation, the department reported. 

Citations for speeding, improper turning, using handheld devices and being unlicensed were issued, said Sgt. Ted Olden. 

“Motorcycles can be hard to spot, so it is important to always look twice for them before changing lanes,” Sgt. Olden said. “Riders should also make themselves visible, so drivers know they are there.” 

Motorists should always check twice for motorcyclists in their mirrors and blind spots, keep a safe distance and speed, and use signals when changing or turning lanes, the sergeant said. 

“The motorcycle safety enforcement operation is aimed at protecting the public by looking for violations made by drivers and riders that make roads dangerous and unsafe,” Sgt. Olden said. 

Funding for the operation came from a grant by the California Office of Traffic Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
