May Is Motorcycle Awareness Month

Although the month of May is quickly coming to an end, the spring month
is National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, a time to pause and think
about just how many motorcycles are on the road with cars
every day. Now that the warm weather has arrived, many people will be
hitting the road on their motorcycles. In 2010, there were more than
eight million registered motorcycles on America’s streets. The theme of
this year’s National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month is “Share the
Road.” You need to remember that Motorcyclists have all the same rights
and privileges as any motor vehicle driver on the roadway, so it’s smart
to share the road. As part of PennDOT’s continuing and aggressive effort
to reduce motorcycle crashes and fatalities, PennDOT created the “Live
Free Ride Alive” website. The interactive website, designed specifically
for riders, challenges motorcyclists to take personal responsibility for
their own safety. The site offers visitors a chance to share personal
riding stories with one another and take the “Be One Less” pledge to
avoid becoming a crash statistic. The site also features a collection of
stories about Pennsylvania riders and their families and friends, that
celebrate the freedom of riding and take a sobering look at what happens
when a rider is hurt in a crash. To learn more about riding safely, to
see videos and to share your riding experiences visit
www.LiveFreeRideAlive.com. Additional safety tips for motorists are
available by selecting the Motorcycle Safety link under the Traffic
Safety Information Center at www.justdrivepa.org.
