Regardless of the random snow earlier this week, motorcycle riders have been taking advantage of the early spring and mild weather to rev up and head on down the road.
Motorcycle use is on the rise in Pennsylvania and nationally, and with May marking National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, the state Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is focusing on improving motorcycle safety with its campaign, “Live Free Ride Alive” in an effort to reduce the number of motorcycle accidents and fatalities statewide. According to PennDOT, there were 397,700 registered motorcycles in 2010 and more than 837,900 licensed motorcyclists in 2011.
