May Is Motorcycle Awareness Month

By Alpert Schreyer on May 11, 2011

Many motorcyclists first take to the roads again in spring, so it’s no surprise that May is Motorcycle Awareness Month in the U.S. To mark the occasion, the American Motorcycle Association and other motorcycle groups are offering additional safety tips for drivers, so that those in cars can share the road with motorcycles while reducing the risk of an accident.

In the 1980s, a monumental research report on motorcycle accidents revealed that accidents are frequently caused not by bikers, but by drivers of cars who either don’t know how to look for motorcycles or who simply fail to pay proper attention. These drivers may fail to check for motorcyclists before responding to a green light or making a turn and may collide with a motorcycle, often causing severe injury to the motorcycle’s rider.

This year, Motorcycle Awareness Month will focus not only on teaching drivers how to look for motorcycles and share the road, but also how to avoid distractions in order to prevent accidents. In recent years, the number of accidents caused by drivers distracted by cell phones or other items has increased, making distracted driving a serious risk for motorcyclists.

Many bikers take responsibility for their safety by wearing appropriate protective gear, making sure their motorcycle and its lights are in good condition, and checking twice for traffic at intersections and railroad crossings. However, sharing the road safely with bikers is still every driver’s responsibility.
