Display provides motorcycle safety awareness
News from Beauregard Daily News:

A display featuring two wrecked motorcycles from crashes that ended in fatalities has been moved from La. 1147 to the Rosepine Civic Building on U.S. 171 by the Goldwing Road Rider Association (GWRRA) Chapter LA-M.

A sign on the display implores drivers to “Watch For Motorcycles.”

Rosepine Police Chief James Parrott gave a few remarks to the group after the display was moved, and he mentioned that during the time the two bikes were on the side of the road on La. 1147, there had been no more bike fatalities or accidents and speeding had slowed down, a release from GWRRA states.

Parrott said that placing the wrecked bikes on U.S. 171 will hopefully have the same effect for bikers on that stretch of road.

“It is our desire to helpĀ  four-wheel vehicles be aware of motorcycle accidents and watch a little more carefully for these two- and three-wheelers that legally share the road with you,” the release states.

More of these types of signs can be found around Vernon Parish, and DeRidder Mayor Ron Roberts has said he will place bumper stickers with the same slogan on all city vehicles, the release states.
