AMA Designates May as Motorcycle Awareness Month

Please be mindful of everyone on the roads

The start of May also marks Motorcycle Awareness Month.

May is National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month and the Texas Department of Transportation wants to make sure you are driving and riding safely out there.

"Most of the time, and it's a high majority, is when there's a motorcycle involved in the crash; somebody from that motorcycle is going to the hospital", said Ohio State Highway Patrolman Erik Golias.

According to preliminary data from the CHP's Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System, previous year 466 motorcyclists were killed in traffic collisions and more than 14,000 motorcyclists were injured. Students are provided with a motorcycle and helmet.

AG: Jury should decide Penn State hazing death case
If they lose the appeal, Shapiro's office could decide to appeal the decision to the Superior Court. Five of those were charged with aggravated assault, involuntary manslaughter and simple assault.

According to an issue statement from NHTSA, "When motorcycles and other vehicles collide, it is usually the other (non-motorcycle) driver who violates the motorcyclist's right-of-way. So when you add inexperience behind a motorcycle operator you usually end up with crashes", said Golias. "It can be easy to overlook a motorcycle due to their smaller size. We encourage all motorists to keep in mind to share the road".

Distracted driving has also been on the rise as one of the leading causes of motorcycle accidents.

Rider will continue to support individuals and organizations in their efforts to promote motorcycle safety awareness through the Rider Insurance Bleiwise Family Foundation and general corporate donations and sponsorships throughout the riding season.

Developed by PennDOT's new program coordinator, Total Control Training Inc., the safety program offers four revamped training syllabuses and one new clinic tailored not just to hone riders' knowledge but to test their ability to physically manipulate a motorcycle properly.
