Drivers should be especially cautious and aware of motorcycle riders. Motorcyclists should also be careful to avoid hazardous situations. Given the lengthy cold and wet spring I expect many motorcyclists will take advantage of the upcoming warm weather. Please be aware that most drivers will not be used to sharing the road with motorcyclists. A little extra caution can prevent a horrible accident.

To increase the safety of motorcyclists, everyone on the road should check your vehicle’s blind spots before changing lanes; give motorcycles extra space to maneuver; and look twice before going through an intersection.
