In 2015 nearly 100,000 motorcycle riders/passengers suffered injuries. May is National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. Whether you drive on four wheels or two it is extremely important to learn more about safe driving practices.
“The vast majority of vehicles on the road are not motorcycles. They’re cars and vans and trucks. It’s quite possible that as a driver you rarely think about motorcycles.
This is a problem.
‘When motorcycles and other vehicles collide, it is usually the other (non-motorcycle) driver who violates the motorcyclist’s right of way,’ according to an issue statement from NHTSA. ‘There is a continuing need to help other motorists ‘think’ motorcycles and to educate motorcyclists to be aware of this problem.’” – National Safety Council
