Motorcycle safety not just for bikers
May 9, 2008
As the weather improves the number of motorcycles on the road will increase. May is National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month and the ideal time to refresh road skills in order to avoid serious accidents.
Take extra care at intersections, keeping in mind motorcycles are easily missed or hidden behind various objects. Follow at a safe distance and be prepared for the motorcycle to stop or change lane positions quickly as small obstacles create large conflicts.
Whether you take transportation with two wheels or four wheels, stay alert on the roads this summer and save lives.
