Florida - Governor Rick Scott has proclaimed May as 'Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month' and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has provided some tips to keep drivers safe.
Florida has great weather and roads for motorcycle enthusiasts. More than a million drivers in Florida have a motorcycle endorsement on their driver licenses, and many visitors ride motorcycles in the Sunshine State.
"At FDOT, we want to make highways safe for all road users, including motorcycles. Motorcyclists should ride smart, and motorists should watch for motorcycles, as they can be difficult to see in traffic," said FDOT Interim Secretary Rachel Cone.
FDOT is committed to making roads safe for all, including motorcyclists. The responsibility for safety is on motorists as well as motorcyclists. FDOT is observing motorcycle safety month in May and asking motorcyclists and motorists to share the road by using these simple tips.
