For many years, there have been marketing and education efforts launched to raise awareness of sharing the road with motorcycles. Drivers are reminded to look out for motorcycles and give them plenty of space. However, too many drivers still have not gotten these messages and continue to make dangerous decisions behind the wheel which can jeopardize the safety of a rider.
People all across California should be used to the fact that there are many people out on the roads at any given time. Pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists should know that we are all expected to share the roads with each other and behave responsibly so that we do not get into an accident. However, too many people fail to take this responsibility seriously and they end up hurting other motorists or, in some of the most tragic cases, vulnerable pedestrians.
