Starting Your Motorcycle Riding Season? Remember these Spring Riding Safety Tips!

March can bring warmer temperatures or snowstorms. A lot of motorcyclists itching to get back out on the road will take advantage of 40-degree days, but it's important to remember this is the time of year when motorcyclists and motorists need to be extra cautious on the roads.

Here are some reminders for riders and motorists:

  • Motorists: watch carefully for motorcycles in traffic and always look twice before turning or changing lanes.
  • Riders: wear full, brightly-colored protective gear, including a DOT-approved helmet.
  • Especially in the spring when there is sand on the road or uneven pavement, riders should travel at safe speeds, pay attention, maintain a minimum two-second following distance and ride sober.
  • This is a good time for riders to sign up for a training class, regardless of their experience.​
