The month of May is Motorcycle safety awareness month. It is a campaign by the NHTSA to remind drivers to be cognizant of motorcycle riders during the busier summer riding months. Riding a motorcycle is a rewarding experience – offering both a sense of freedom as well as unparalleled views of the world around us. Unfortunately, this reward comes with significant risks.
According to the NHTSA
, there were over 5000 motorcycle riders killed in 2008 and 96,000 injured. In 2009, Colorado accidents claimed the lives of nearly 90 motorcycle riders, accounting for almost 20% of ALL traffic fatalities in the state.
