This video is a part of TxDOT’s Share the Road: Look Twice for Motorcycles campaign. The motorcycle safety and public awareness campaign urges motorists to look twice for motorcycles especially at intersections and when changing lanes, the two places where serious motorcycle collisions commonly occur.
Join us this weekend in Temple, Texas, at the 6th annual Ribs and Rods Car Show. We’ll be talking to motorists about looking twice for motorcycles.
We’ll also be giving away freebies! Free items including bumper stickers, yard signs, tip cards, and koozies will be available. Stop by the exhibit booth, introduce yourself, and pick up your free items!

Remember, Don’t be a Hog. Share the Road.

On average, a motorcyclist dies in a crash on Texas roads every day. To mark Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month in May – and to remember the 455 motorcyclists lost in crashes last year – the Texas Department of Transportation is launching its “Share the Road: Look Twice for Motorcycles” campaign.
“Motorcycles can be difficult to see so it’s important for drivers to look twice, especially before turning at intersections or changing lanes,” said TxDOT Executive Director James Bass. “Motorcyclists are extremely vulnerable because they don’t have seat belts, airbags and surrounding steel doors to protect them.”
