Saanich Police bike squad has now equipped their bikes with emergency lights.
As a result of suggestions from bike squad officer, the front-line police bikes have now been outfitted with emergency lights. These lights on the bikes are the first of their kind in the Capital Region.
Some of the benefits of the newly installed lights are:
• Increased safety for the rider
• Increased safety for the public
• Compliance with the MVA in stopping a vehicle
• Assist with visibility during traffic control duties
Remember, if you see one of these bikes behind you with emergency equipment activated, you must yield and pull over to the nearest edge of the roadway.
If you see one of our bike squad officers out on patrol, stop them and have a look at the new lights.
