May Recognized as Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month

Lexington, SC - With thousands of people across the state taking to the streets on their motorcycles, the County of Lexington urges both riders and vehicle drivers alike to ride safe and ride smart.

A motorcycle’s narrow profile makes them more difficult to see than a four-wheeled vehicle, as they can be hidden by the post beams of your vehicle, signs, foliage and larger vehicles. It is imperative to double-check your blind spots carefully to ensure there are no approaching motorcycles.

Also, motorcyclists often slow their vehicles by downshifting gears or merely “rolling off” the throttle. In doing so, a motorcycle’s brake lights may not illuminate to indicate that the rider is intending to slow down. Always give yourself extra distance when following a motorcycle.

It is important that we share all of our County’s roadways and make it home safely! Remember; look twice, and save a life.
