The Motors Unit is presenting a Motorcycle Safety Event on Saturday, October 1 from 9 - 11 a.m. at the South Precinct (11139 Bradford Road, Littleton, CO). Please download the Motorcycle Safety Event flyer.
When you earn your motorcycle endorsement the letter “M” is stamped on your driver’s license right next to height, as if ‘motorcycle’ was just another part of your physical characteristics, or maybe a mental condition. You see, cars deceive us into thinking we’re safe, and in control. The air-conditioning fans murmur a sense of tranquility. Motorcycles tell us we are small and exposed, and probably moving too fast for our own good, but that’s no reason not to enjoy every minute of the ride.
As an operator of a motor vehicle we urge you to look twice and save a life. Every biker’s family deserves to see them ride home safely. Look twice before switching lanes, making turns, or pulling out of a driveway. Stay on your side of the road, especially around corners. Don’t follow too closely; motorcyclists may brake suddenly to maneuver around road hazards that cars need not consider. Keep your eyes on the road, and off your cell phone. Take the time to learn motorcycle awareness habits to avoid using these four deadly words, “I didn’t see him”.
