A tragic story about the deaths of seven motorcyclists in another state recently made national news. In addition to the seven motorcyclists who died, two other people suffered significant injuries.
May is National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, in which the National Safety Council and other organizations educate the public about the unique dangers faced by motorcyclists. While many of this month's activities are geared toward motorcycle riders, the organizers also hope to attract the attention of car and truck drivers. It is crucial to traffic safety that other drivers are made aware of the two-wheeled vehicles sharing the roads with them.
