Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell is among 275 mayors in the state and many other across the country declaring the month of May to be Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month.
Last year, there were 470 deaths in motorcycle crashes in Texas. In at least half of these, an automobile driver did not see the motorcyclist, leading to a fatal accident.
To work towards increasing motorcycle safety, the Texas Department of Transportation is providing the state with 10,000 “Share the Road” signs to remind drivers to be wary of motorcyclists.
