Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month starts in May, supported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This month marks when drivers need to start being more mindful of motorcycles, and the increase number of pedestrians out taking advantage of the beautiful weather.
All drivers need to be practicing safe driving habits, but when the weather starts to get nicer most drivers need a little reminder. Automobile drivers have more protection than a motorcyclist to road hazards, simply checking your mirrors diligently and using a turn signal can potentially avert an accident. Please stay safe out on the roads, and travel at a safe distance from other vehicles.
