CDOT Mounts Motorcycle Safety Campaign in Fort Collins

I was cruising around Fort Collins on my motorcycle the other day, and I saw two different signs that said something really awesome.

“Look for Motorcycles.”

Beautiful. I love my bike as much as anything, but I am well aware that it is a more dangerous way to travel. Any motorist that is looking out for bikers is okay by me (that goes for bicyclists, too).

This is a CDOT campaign, and I assume they are doing it because it’s a lot cheaper and easier to spread a little awareness than to clean up after motorcycle crashes. Kudos for that!

They go into detail at comotorcyclesafety.com, where they give us these tips.

Live to Ride

CDOT’s Live to Ride campaign is designed to help motorcyclists of all skill levels ride safely, have fun, and most importantly, stay alive. Live to Ride endorses three primary safety messages:

  • Get Training: Lack of training is a factor in Colorado’s fatal motorcycle crashes.  Motorcycle riders were found to be at fault in 7 out of 10 fatal crashes.
  • Ride Sober: Impaired riding is also a major problem. 36% of riders killed in motorcycle crashes in 2011 were under the influence of alcohol.
  • Wear Proper Protective Gear: Nearly two-thirds of the riders killed in Colorado last year were not wearing a helmet or were wearing it incorrectly.
