BCPD reinstates motorcycle unit

   This year, Bay City Police Department has reinstated a motorcycle unit whose priority is to stop traffic violators and write citations.
   This would include increased enforcement of occupant restraint laws, traffic light violations and speed limit laws especially in school zones.
   The decision to implement the motorcycle was based on the increased volume of traffic in Bay City, and the maneuverability of a motorcycle unit.
   BCPD hopes to increase driver safety in the city and reduce crashes and fatalities.
   It has been several years since the department last used a motorcycle. The position was vacated and the department went several years without a designated traffic officer.
   Reinstating the position has been in the works for some time and the timing was right this year for its reintroduction.
