This coin is being released to help raise awareness of motorcycles on the roadways.
How Can I Become More Aware of Motorcyclists?
Respect the motorcyclist: Remember the motorcycle is a vehicle with all of the privileges of any vehicle on the roadway. Give the motorcyclist a full lane of travel.
Look out: Look for the motorcyclist at intersections, when a motorcyclist may be making a left turn, and on the highway, when a motorcyclist may be changing lanes. Clearly signal your intentions.
Anticipate a motorcyclist's maneuver: Obstructions that you do not notice may be deadly for a motorcyclist. Predict evasive actions.
Allow plenty of space: Don't follow a motorcycle too closely. Allow enough room for the motorcyclist to take evasive actions.
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.
We can spread this message faster and farther by having more coins out there, can you release one of your own for this great cause??
