EL CAJON (CBS 8) - Police in El Cajon are cracking down on unsafe motorcycle riding in an effort to lower the number of deaths and injuries.

Extra officers are on duty Friday as part of a specialized motorcycle safety enforcement operation. They are patrolling areas frequented by motorcyclists and where motorcycle crashes occur.

"We're going to be doing enforcement on motorcyclists that are driving too fast, or other vehicles that might be turning in front of a motorcycle, right-of-way violations, unsafe turning movements," Sgt. Matt Conlon said.

In the city of El Cajon in 2013, there were 25 motorcycle collisions, resulting in one fatality and 23 motorcyclists injured.

So far two motorcyclists have been killed in 2014.
