KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Police advise riders and drivers to be more aware of each other as they hit the road after the long winter months. As the weather warms, motorcycle riders are ready to roll but it usually takes a little while for other drivers to get used to sharing the road to motorcycles again.
“Cars aren’t used to the motorcycle traffic in and out of lanes. It’s a good time of year to start being observant and watching lanes before you switch,” said Capt. Donna Greenwell of the Kansas City, Mo., Police Department.
But it’s not all on the drivers. Police say those on two wheels need to do their part, too. According to Greenwell, they should not ride in blind spots and must be cautious riders.
The motorcycle accidents in the state was caused by drivers, others by the riders, or a combination of both, so police are urging everyone to keep their eyes open and share the road safely because it’s only going to get busier.
“The warmer it gets and the less rain we get, the more motorcycles you’re gonna see out there.”
