The American Motorcyclist Association issued a special appeal to motorists to be aware of motorcycles during the month of May, which is designated as Motorcycle Awareness Month and marks the seasonal return of motorcyclists to roadways in much of the country.
Drivers are asked to check their mirrors and blind spots before changing lanes, maintain a safe distance when following motorcycles and pay particular attention when making left turns.
“May’s pleasant temperatures mean many more riders on the roads, especially in parts of the country where winter weather is just ending,” said Rob Dingman, AMA president and CEO. “This provides an excellent opportunity for us to educate the non-riding public about the safety issues that affect motorcyclists every time we roll out of our driveways.”
Motorcycle Awareness Month was launched by the AMA in the early 1980s and has been adopted by many state motorcycle-rights organizations, government entities and AMA-sanctioned clubs to be observed each year.
