Throughout May, the OTS and our traffic safety partners will be raising awareness about the importance of keeping bike and motorcycle riders safe.

“Motorcycle riders are more vulnerable out in the elements, which is why it is important for drivers to be mindful of riders and drive safely around motorcycles,” OTS Director Barbara Rooney said.

"“More and more people are taking up bike riding, and it is important that drivers are aware of bicyclists and travel safely around them," Director Barbara Rooney said. “If you need to move past a bike, try to provide at least three feet of space whenever possible. Think of others on the road who are not driving as your closest friends or family.”
