Northwest Iowa — Spring brings warmer weather, sunshine, flowers and it’s when motorcycles begin to appear on the road.
May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month and Iowa State Patrol Trooper Kevin Krull says it’s vital that motorists keep an eye out for these vehicles.
Trooper Krull offered a suggestion to help you more effectively spot motorcycles while you’re on the road.
But of course the responsibility to avoid colliding with a motorcycle does not belong ONLY to the motorist, Krull says the motorcycle riders need to be the most defensive drivers on the road.
He also suggests that motorcyclists dress in a way that makes them more visible.
Trooper Krull says that motorists and motorcycle riders alike need to drive defensively, look out for one another and expect the unexpected, during Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, and all year long.
