Look Twice...Save a Life!


MAY IS MOTORCYCLE AWARENESS MONTH. ALWAYS LOOK TWICE…YOU MIGHT SAVE A LIFE.
ACCORDING TO MICHIGAN’S SECRETARY OF STATE RUTH JOHNSON "EIGHTY PERCENT OF MOTORCYCLE CRASHES RESULT IN INJURY OR WORSE FOR THE MOTORCYCLIST," JOHNSON, WHO WAS ONE OF THE FIRST WOMEN IN OAKLAND COUNTY TO RECEIVE A MOTORCYCLE ENDORSEMENT, STATES; "THAT IS WHY SHARING THE ROAD SAFELY IS SO IMPORTANT. MOTORISTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO LOOK TWICE FOR MOTORCYCLES. MOTORCYCLISTS ARE URGED TO GET TRAINED, GET ENDORSED AND WEAR THE PROPER SAFETY GEAR."
LOOKING TWICE FOR MOTORCYCLISTS IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE MOTORCYCLE-VEHICLE CRASHES ARE MOST LIKELY TO HAPPEN AT INTERSECTIONS AND LEFT TURNS. ROAD CONDITIONS THAT DON'T BOTHER CARS AND TRUCKS CAN POSE REAL THREATS TO MOTORCYCLES, SO MOTORISTS ARE URGED TO GIVE MOTORCYCLISTS EXTRA SPACE.
AS THE POPULARITY OF MOTORCYCLING CONTINUES TO GROW, EVERYONE NEEDS TO TAKE THAT EXTRA SECOND TO LOOK TWICE AND SAVE A LIFE.
