May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month – Share the Road
If you notice, the warmer the weather gets the motorcycles you see all over the city. Sometimes when we are in the safety of our own vehicles, we sometimes miss people on their motorcycles because of blind spots. May marks the start of Motorcycle Safety Awareness month. The Texas Department of Public Safety encourages you to Share the Road.
From the Texas Department of Public Safety:
“Unfortunately motorcyclists are at a disadvantage when traveling on any roadway because of the size of their vehicle compared to others on the road,” said DPS Director Steven McCraw. “Driving is a tremendous responsibility, and DPS encourages all motorists to actively watch out for each other. Motorcyclists can help protect themselves by wearing helmets and always obeying traffic laws; and other drivers can do their part by looking twice and giving motorcycle riders additional space.”
