Motorcycle Awareness Month

Steve Wagner

May is the month for roadway safety, and Governor Mike Pence is continuing the trend by naming May as Indiana’s new Motorcycle Awareness Month. In addition to National Bike Month and National Train Day, Motorcycle Awareness Month will serve to educate and promote safety for everyone on the roadways, when it comes to encountering and driving around motorcycles.

According to a release from the governor’s office, 75% of all motorcycle accidents involve multiple cars, and 2/3rds of those accidents occur by a violation of a motorcyclist’s’ right-of-way. In addition to those accident statistics, the governor’s office also discovered that 92% of all motorcyclists who were involved in an accident had never received any formal training for riding, and were self-taught.

As part of this initiative to raise awareness for motorcycle safety, Indiana is partnering with ABATE, a local motorcycle safety group, to alert people of the need for training and safety awareness when it comes to motorcycles. There was an awareness rally on May 1st in Monument Circle for anyone interested in learning more about motorcycle safety.
