Northwest Iowa – Spring brings warmer weather, sunshine, flowers and that’s when motorcycles start to appear on the road.
May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month and Iowa State Patroller Kevin Krull says it’s critical that motorists watch these vehicles.
Private Krull offered a suggestion to help you spot motorcycles more effectively while you’re on the road.
But of course the responsibility of avoiding colliding with a motorcycle is not ONLY with the motorist, according to Krull, motorcyclists have to be the most defensive drivers on the road.
He also suggests that motorcyclists dress in a way that makes them more visible.
Private Krull says motorists and motorcyclists should drive defensively, look out for each other and expect the unexpected, during Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month and throughout the year .
