  • Exercise caution for motorcyclists

    Editor:

    Spring is here motorcyclists are riding the roadways. If you are riding a motorcycle or driving a vehicle you have a responsibility to protect the motoring public.

    Motorcyclists should take extra care to protect themselves: obey the traffic laws, wear protective riding gear, maintain a safe motorcycle, be aware of weather and road conditions, ride as if the motoring public is not aware you are out there, make sure you are seen in traffic, and ride as if you are invisible. The life you save may be your own.
