This month Hattast-ique would like to remind everyone it is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. This is a good time for both motorcyclists and motorists to remember some safety while motorcycles are becoming more common on the road. As a vendor for various bike rallies this is especially important to us because so many of the amazing people we meet are also motorcyclists.
The weather is warming up and that means that the motorcycles riders are eager to get on the road. This means that there are more motorcycles on the road and it is important to be alert and share the road. Motorcyclists can sometimes be hard to see so it is important to remember that they are out there and that sharing the road and looking twice might just save a life. So please check your blind spots, check your mirrors, and use your turn signals. Motorcyclists please check your motorcycle for any maintenance issues and ensure it is ready for the road. Responsibility is up to everyone on the road motorcyclists and motorists alike.
Any driver can be distracted and distracted driving is on the rise. Please wait to respond to your texts when you are not operating a vehicle. Also if you have to make a call please use a hand- free device. At the end of the day it is better to arrive safe then to regret answering the text or phone and causing an accident.
So I will leave you with this, please share the road, stay alert, and have an awesome summer whether it is on your motorcycle or cruising in your car!
