May is a beautiful time of the year. The temperatures are rising, the sun sets later in the day, and people can be seen out enjoying the good weather. This also means that for our motorcycle riders across PA, it’s time to break out the bikes and go riding.
Drivers in our state probably haven’t seen many motorcycles out on the roads since we had such a long, harsh winter. It can be easy to get used to not having to check for motorcycles which is one of the main reasons why May is motorcycle awareness month.
This is the time of year that everyone needs to be reminded to check twice before turning or merging in case there is a motorcycle. Riders are harder to spot than cars or trucks and sadly most motorcycle injuries are caused by other drivers.
