May is National Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Month

Drivers should be especially cautious and aware of motorcycle riders. Motorcyclists should also be careful to avoid hazardous situations. Given the lengthy cold and wet spring I expect many motorcyclists will take advantage of the upcoming warm weather. Please be aware that most drivers will not be used to sharing the road with motorcyclists. A little extra caution can prevent a horrible accident.

To increase the safety of motorcyclists, everyone on the road should check your vehicle’s blind spots before changing lanes; give motorcycles extra space to maneuver; and look twice before going through an intersection.
