To commemorate Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is running a comprehensive campaign throughout May aimed at reducing the number of deadly motorcycle crashes. Using the slogan “Get Up to Speed on Motorcycles,” the main goal is to educate automobile drivers about safer ways to share the road with motorcyclists.
The information focuses on typical motorcycle riding behaviors and how to handle potentially risky situations such as intersections, blind spots, motorcycle visibility and calculating distance and stopping time. The campaign also includes a component for motorcyclists with safety tips and strategies for safer and more enjoyable rides.
In addition, the NHTSA website provides a variety of printable/downloadable educational resources that include posters, sample press releases and social media content that other national and local organizations and municipalities can use to spread the message.
Here are some of the recommendations from the materials developed by the NHTSA for Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month.
