Motorcyclists have all the same rights and privileges as any motor vehicle driver on the roadway. This means they are entitled to their space on the road, no matter the size of their ride. This also means that they must follow the same road laws as other vehicles, including keeping a safe distance from other vehicles. During Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month in May - and during the rest of the year - drivers of all other vehicles are reminded to "share the road" with motorcyclists, and to be extra alert to keep motorcyclists safe.
Use these marketing materials to spread the word about increasing motorcyclists' safety, and support and enhance local motorcycle safety awareness programs for all road users.
COMING SOON: NHTSA has been collecting model Share The Road language from the States and is currently developing highly-specific segmented messages that directly correspond to specific crash factors for states to utilize in their own motorist awareness efforts.
