motorcycleMay is Motorcycle Safety Month

The Burlingame Police Department is joining law enforcement statewide and across the United States in the National Motorcycle safety awareness month special enforcement operations. In addition, the California Motorcyclist Safety Program is offering special, low cost rider training classes during the month of May.

The Burlingame Police Department will be conducting a specialized Motorcycle Safety Enforcement Operation in an effort to lower deaths and injuries. Extra officers will be patrolling areas frequented by motorcyclists and where motorcycle crashes occur. Officers will be looking for violations made by drivers and riders alike that can lead to motorcycle crashes.

The California Motorcyclist Safety Program (CMSP) training program is offering a "Total Control Refresher Training" course during the month of May. This four-hour riding class is for experienced riders with a current motorcycle license. Riders will use their own street-legal motorcycle during the class taught by CMSP-certified Instructors at a cost of only $95. Click here to log onto the CMSP website and register at a location near you.

Over the course of the past three years in Burlingame, motorcycle involved collisions have resulted in 7 fatal and injury crashes. New Riders are urged to get basic training through the California Motorcyclist Safety Program. Information and training locations are available at or by calling (877) RIDE 411 or (877) 743-3411.
lendingtoolsNew Lending Toolkit at the Library

Burlingame Library has a new resource to lend out - a Home Energy and Water Saving Toolkit. The Toolkit is filled with devices and information to save money, energy, and water. Users check out the toolkit (just like a library book) but get to keep the cool devices inside - like an LED lightbulb weather stripping, and low flow showerhead - to save money, energy, and water at home. The toolbox is then returned and restocked by the library. Look for the toolkit in your nearby library.
