Motorcyclists urged to stay safe 15oct04 VICTORIA Police will target motorcyclists making their way to Phillip Island for the motorcycle grand prix this weekend. Victoria Police has issued the warning following the deaths of two motorcyclists in separate accidents on the state's roads this week. So far this year, 32 motorcyclists have lost their lives on Victorian roads. Superintendent Bill De Bruyn said police would maintain a visible presence on the Bass Highway and at Phillip Island throughout the weekend. "There are no pit stops, no chequered flags and no second starts on our roads," Superintendent De Bruyn said. "The aim is to keep the speed on the race track and off the streets." He said there were simple things motorcyclists could do to help prevent a fatal collision. "I urge people travelling to and from the track to be patient and observe road signs and traffic police." Motorcyclists are advised to plan their rides to include allocated rest stops and to make sure they are wearing proper safety clothing. "A traffic plan has been implemented to ensure access to and from the (grand prix) track will be as smooth and delay free as possible."
