The Delaware Office of Highway Safety (OHS) along with state and local law enforcement, is reminding motorists to Share The Road and reminding motorcyclists to Respect Your Ride.
From now until Aug. 18, law enforcement agencies statewide will be patrolling high crash roadways ensuring that both motorists and motorcyclists are complying with the state’s traffic safety laws, as well as ensuring motorcyclists have the proper motorcycle endorsement on their license.
The Share The Road campaign is aimed at motorists to be extra alert and to keep an eye out for motorcyclists on Delaware roadways. Motorists are reminded to allow a motorcyclist a full lane width and allow for more following distance between you and the motorcyclists.
The Respect Your Ride campaign directs motorcyclist to MotorcyclesafetyDE.org, where they can find information about proper tools and training to make them safe riders. It also provides popular riding routes in Delaware and links on how to apply for a motorcycle license.
