May has been proclaimed Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month in Michigan.  Did you know that motorcycles are entitled by state law to a full traffic lane?  This means that you should pass motorcycles exactly as you would pass autos and trucks.  Swing into the opposite lane, giving the cycle a full traffic lane, and don't pull back in until you can see the cycle headlight in your rear view mirror.  Remember, May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month.  Please share the road to prevent needless accidents, injuries and deaths.

Have you noticed how many of your friends, neighbors and relatives are riding motorcycles these days?  There are 248,000 registered motorcycles operating in Michigan today.  There is a safety problem in that motorcycles are smaller, and somewhat harder to see.  Drivers tend to underestimate the cycles speed.   When an accident occurs, cycle riders rarely escape injury.  Too often they are killed.  It doesn't have to be that way if motorists will remember that motorcycle riders have equal rights on the road.  May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month in Michigan.  Let's all share the road.
