Show Your Support for Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month
After a long, cold Canadian winter, motorcyclists are eager to get back on the roads. Warmer spring weather signals the start of the motorcycle season – that’s why May is officially recognized as Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. The Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada (MCC) wants all motorcyclists to be visible on the roads, in the hopes of reducing crashes, especially at intersections where almost 50 per cent of motorcycle collisions occur.
“Motorcycle safety is everyone’s responsibility,” explains Dave Millier, MCC Chair. “We’re encouraging everyone to take the Motorcycle Safety Pledge because behind the helmet, motorcyclists are mothers, fathers, children, and friends.”
