May is Motorcycle Awareness & Safety Month

Contributed by Monty Lish, Manager, EMST
May is typically one of the deadliest months for motorcyclists, as many riders begin to start riding again for the season after taking the winter months off. As the weather starts to warm up we start to see more motorcyclists on the roads interacting with traffic. May is the time to remind all motorists and motorcyclist to be more alert and watch out for each other on the roads.

Motorcyclists also need to be aware that their motorcycle skills are perishable, and if they don’t use these skills everyday they can lose them. Even experienced motorcyclist can benefit from taking a motorcycle safety class, especially if they have not been on a motorcycle for a while.

If you are a beginner or an experienced motorcyclist you can benefit from taking a motorcycle safety class from Evergreen Safety Council. Get ready for the riding season and sign up for a class today.

View the Public Service Announcement created by the Washington DOL last year for motorcycle awareness.
