The California Highway Patrol will host a motorcycle safety awareness event on Saturday in the River Park shopping center in northeast Fresno.
The event is part of a joint effort by the CHP and the California Office of Traffic Safety to increase safety education after a rash of motorcycle-related injuries and deaths throughout the state this year. It will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public, and it will include a demonstration from the CHP on proper braking and a riding event. The California Motorcyclist Safety Program, local law enforcement, Valley motorcycle suppliers and other vendors will also set up booths.
