May is Motorcycle Awareness Month!All riders know that more needs to be done to raise motorist awareness of the millions of motorcycles sharing U.S. roads each year. Many communities across the nation have experienced crashes resulting in serious rider injury or fatality due to inattentive, careless or unaware drivers. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2008, 47 percent of all motorcycles involved in fatal crashes collided with another type of motor vehicle in transport.On March 25, 2010 in Phoenix, Arizona, four riders were killed and five others seriously injured when they were hit from behind by a large truck while stopped at a traffic light. This sad event has touched the hearts of many and reinforced the importance of motorcycle awareness initiatives. As riders, it is our responsibility to make ourselves highly visible while riding and to do our part in creating more awareness of motorcyclists everywhere.The victims of the Phoenix wreck were members of “Phoenix MC Kruzers” (PMCK) and “Phoenix Motorcycle Riders Group” (PMRG) Meetup Groups. In support of motorcycle awareness and of PMCK and PMRG in honoring the fallen riders and their families, ride groups across the nation are being asked to ride on the same day in May.Please join PMCK, PMRG and several other groups by scheduling a ride in your area on May 23, 2010. Riders are asked to wear bright colors, such as lime green, bright yellow or safety orange. Some groups are having shirts made for the occasion with “Can You See Me Now” printed across the back. And, ride organizers are strongly encouraged to make local media aware of their event. If there are multiple riding groups in your area, consider joining together, as larger groups tend to attract more attention from motorists and may assist in obtaining media coverage.Some groups have expressed a desire to combine their ride event with a fundraiser to benefit the victims of the Phoenix crash. Condolences and/or donations may be sent to:FMVF (Fallen Motorcycle Victims, and Families)PO Box 72090Phoenix, AZ 85050It is not necessary to wear any special color, to have a specific event, nor to obtain media coverage…. The important thing is to show support for PMCK, PMRG and promote motorcycle awareness by getting out and riding (safely) for at least one hour on May 23, 2010.Thank you,Fellow Meetup Group Motorcycle Riders
