AlertID raises awareness and offers tips to safely share the road
The great riding conditions experienced in the spring and summer months result in increased motorcyclists on the road, requiring additional caution among all motorists.
May is National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month and AlertID is working to educate all motorists across the country to safely share the road.
According to multiple case studies, including the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 62 percent of motorcycle fatalities occur between May and September. A majority of motorcycle accidents are caused when a vehicle motorist fails to detect and recognize the motorcyclist.
"It is our hope that motorcycle safety campaigns such as this will help keep riders and other motorists informed and safe on the road," AlertID founder Keli Wilson said.
