Transport authorities are encouraging bikers to respect the roads as the Isle of Man gears up for the 2014 Festival of Motorcycling.


The Department of Infrastructure is continuing a campaign launched at this year's TT with hard-hitting images and the 'Don't bin it' slogan. Several thousand visitors are expected from the end of this week.


Head of the roads policing unit, Sergeant Allan Thompson said: 'Unlike the TT period, the Mountain Road will remain open to two-way traffic during the Festival of Motorcycling. We would encourage people to get to their spectator points in good time and avoid any last-minute rush before roads close. It is important to respect the roads at all times and pay attention to speed limits, road conditions
and other road users. We want people to have fun, but also to stay safe.’
