This coin is being released to help raise awareness of motorcycle safety on the roads.
What are Some Situations When Crashes are Most Likely to Occur?
Car making a left turn: A driver is attempting a left turn in front of you.
Riding in a driver's blind spot: You are riding in the driver's blind spot and the driver may not see the motorcycle. Additionally, the driver may fail to adequately check blind spots before changing lanes or making turn.
Hazardous road conditions: Potholes, wet leaves, railroad tracks and other road obstructions may dictate that you take an action that a driver may not or does not anticipate.
Obstructed line of sight: Large vehicles, such as sport utility vehicles, delivery vans, and large trucks may block a motorcycle from a driver's view and you may seem to suddenly appear.
About This Item
Motorcycle fatalities now account for 11% of total road fatalities and have increased each year from a low of 2,116 in 1997 to 4,810 in 2006.
Our message to all drivers is: Make this the first year in recent years when motorcycle fatalities do NOT increase.
Help to share in the responsibility and do your part by safely 'Sharing the Road' with motorcycles.
