Motorcycle safety urged during awareness month

HARRISBURG – In recognition of Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch joined representatives of motorcycle riding and training communities, as well as the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP), to urge riders and motorists to be safe around motorcycles.

“Both motorcycle fatalities and crashes dropped last year from the year before and overall crash fatalities are at historic lows,” Schoch said. “The continuing support of the riding community, along with legislation regarding motorcycle safety, provides important tools we can use to help ensure the safety and survivability of riders here in Pennsylvania.”

Adding their messages of support for safety and training for experienced and novice riders were PSP Commissioner Frank Noonan and representatives from the Alliance of Bikers Aimed Toward Education and the Pennsylvania Motorcycle Safety Program (PAMSP).

“One of the most difficult tasks of a state trooper is to inform a family member that a loved one was suddenly and tragically killed in a fatal crash,” Noonan said. “Sadly, some of these crashes may have been prevented, had the driver exercised responsible driving practices.
