Current GOAL

Operation Save-A-Life is a motorcycle awareness program intended for school and civic groups.
OSAL's goal is to teach automobile drivers to be alert to motorcycle operators on the highways with the aim of helping everyone to "share the road" safely.


About This Item

OSAL

Top 10 Ways to Drive Aware:
1. You can drive aware of motorcycles, if you know what to expect from motorcyclists and the situations where accidents are likely to occur.

2. Look out for motorcyclists. Be aware that although you may not see any cars, there may be an unnoticed motorcycle. Be careful at intersections, particularly when making left turns.

3. Anticipate a motorcyclist’s maneuvers. Motorcyclists may change positions in the lane to better observe traffic flow, respond to road conditions, get motorist’s attention and other factors. Expect and allow room for such conditions.

4. Signal your intentions, even if you don’t see cars in front or behind you. Again, be particularly careful when making left turns across lanes of approaching traffic. Look carefully in all directions for approaching motorcyclists.

"Look Twice, Save-A-Life!"


5. Respect motorcyclists’ rights to the road. Give motorcycles a full lane to maneuver, just as you would a vehicle.

6.Do not tailgate a motorcycle. Motorcyclists may need to slow down quickly, swerve or change lane position to avoid gravel, rocks, oil slicks, animals and other road debris. Tailgating could lead to a severe accident or death of a motorcyclist. Keep a four second distance between you and the motorcycle.

7. Drive aware of your surroundings. Motorists have a steel cage around them with four or more tires on the road. Motorcyclists are far more vulnerable to serious injury as a result of being in an accident with a motorist.

8.Motorcycles are easy to maneuver. They can turn and swerve very well at slow speed. However, people think that they can get out of any situation. This is not so. Motorcycles traveling at highway speed are more difficult to maneuver in problem situations and, unlike motorists, require more concentration and coordination to be operated safely.

9. Pay attention to the motorcyclist’s hand signals. Some motorcycles do not have self-canceling turn signals. Therefore, wait to see what the motorcyclist does before you make your move.

10. Motorcyclists often ride in groups. When entering or exiting a highway and attempting to pass a group of motorcyclists, do not cut into the group unless the group has provided space for you. If there isn’t any space, let the group pass the exit before making your move. And when passing a group, make sure you can safely pass the whole group or move into the space provided for you!

Looks like TB hasn't been in the listed cache in over 5 years! It would be helpful to other cachers if it was removed from the inventory.

Sorry, we found this trackable sometime ago and did not really realize it was a trackable until looking at it the other day. So, we will place it in a cache very soon.....as soon as the snow melts.
