May is National Motorcycle Awareness Month: Look twice, save a life

Sometimes it only takes one wrong move for a crash to happen. If that crash is with a motorcycle, the rider is more likely to be seriously injured or killed. In motorcycle crashes where the driver of another vehicle is at fault, failure to yeild the right of way is still the leading contributing factor.

Motorists:

  • Start seeing motorcyclists! They're smaller and their speed and distance are more difficult to judge.
  • Always look twice before entering a roadway or changing lanes.
  • Give riders room and check blind spots.

Both riders and drivers need to work together to share the road.
