With the arrival of warm weather and sunny skies each spring, there is also an increase in the number of motorcycles on the road and an increased risk for motorcycle accidents. In order to reduce the risk of accidents, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has named May “Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month.”
This month, safety campaigns remind drivers to share the road with motorcycles, warn motorcyclists of the dangers of drinking, ride to raise awareness and to prevent fatal motorcycle crashes. Drivers of other vehicles are reminded that they must be vigilant and mindful of motorcycles on the road, and riders are urged to make sure they are visible to other drivers. Alcohol can greatly impair a motorcyclist’s coordination and affect his or her ability to balance, resulting in a deadly motorcycle accident.
