Motorcycle Safety

Motorcycle Safety is one of the primary focuses of the Lorain County Safe Communities Coalition.  Currently we are focusing on three campaigns to prevent motorcycle injuries and deaths here in Lorain County.

Share The Road
All motorists are reminded to safely "share the road" with motorcycles and to be extra alert to help keep motorcyclists safe. Motorcyclists are reminded to make themselves visible to other motorists.

Ride Sober
Statistics show that the percentage of intoxicated motorcycle riders in fatal crashes is greater than the percentage of intoxicated drivers on our roads. This is why we urge all motorcycle riders to always ride smart and sober.

Helmet Use:
Statistics show that helmets save lives. Motorcyclists are reminded to always wear a helmet when riding.
