COOMERA Police will be spearheading a major blitz on dangerous motorcyclists on western highland roads where six people have died this year.
Coomera District crime prevention co-ordinator Sergeant Martin Webb said three of the dead were motorcyclists and a number of other people had been seriously injured in the crashes.
"Police are also aware of a number of near-misses caused by high speeds, incorrect cornering and bad driver behaviour," Sgt Webb said.

Police from Coomera, Logan and special constables from NSW will take part in the crackdown on motorcyclists and other drivers on country roads at the back of Nerang towards Beaudesert and the NSW border.
"These are 60km/h zones but too many motorcyclists are easily doing 80km/h on corners."
Sgt Webb said many recreational motorbike riders were testing their skills and enjoyment from cornering on winding, country roads at weekends.
Offenders were difficult to catch because the winding roads made it difficult for police to set up speed traps.
"Motorcyclists are flashing each other if they see a trap and they are difficult to catch because they can reach high speeds very quickly," he said.
"We can't be everywhere at once, so, we will be using new tactics to catch dangerous drivers."
"New enforcement methods and technologies will be used on bendy roads and known dangerous locations," he said.
"One method is speed enforcement from recording the time a vehicle travels to cover a set distance."
Sgt Webb warned offenders they would cop heavy fines and motorbike riders who clocked up high speeds could have their licences immediately suspended.
"Tasking has already started for local police and the larger contingent of police will be working on this operation from mid to late June," he said.
