Increased awareness of motorcycles being stressed

With more motorcycles cruising on the roads in Wisconsin this spring, local law enforcement reminds drivers to be alert for the two-wheel vehicles, especially at intersections.  According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, over 550,000 residents in Wisconsin hold a motorcycle license or permit.  Door County Sheriff Deputy Pat McCarty says all drivers must be aware and share the road equally.

 

 

Wisconsin DOT reports that the motorcycling community is getting older, generally speaking. The average age of a motorcyclist involved in fatal crashes increased from 30 years old in 1992 to 45 in 2019. There were nearly 1800 motorcycle crashes last year in Wisconsin, resulting in 81 motorcycle-related deaths. May is National Motorcycle Awareness Month. You can find tips on motorcycle safety below.
