Look Twice for Motorcycles

Signs on Interstate 17 indicate Look Twice For Motorcycles.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has stated that May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness month.

Motorists have been reminded to share the road with motorcycles and to be more alert, to help keep motorcyclists safe, and all drivers are reminded to drive sober.

Efforts have been made by NHTSA and the US Department of Transportation to reduce motorcyclist fatalities, since data has shown that motorcyclist deaths have exceeded pedestrian deaths, and have amounted for 11% of highway fatalities.

Fatalities have increased disproportionately to the rise in motorcycle registrations and sales.

NHTSA data indicates that in 45% of the deaths helmets were not worn. Most fatalities occur on weekends. 90% of fatalities are males. Motorcyclists are more likely to be killed in crashes involving more than one vehicle.

NHTSA has made efforts to increase the use of helmets and other protective gear, get more riders to complete novice and experienced rider training courses, and become properly licensed, reduce driving after drinking and NHTSA has made further efforts to increase the awareness of other motorists to motorcyclists on the road.

Between Memorial Day and Labor Day the Interstates in Arizona are particularly busy. Look twice for motorcycles.
