MSF and Caltrans cooperate to improve motorcycle safety

Share the Road

Special thanks to two eagle-eyed, camera-toting readers, Patrick Duffy and Steven Weyrick, for capturing these images of a special motorcycle awareness message appearing recently on the digital signs that line California’s freeway system.

[“SHARE THE ROAD—LOOK TWICE FOR MOTORCYCLISTS”, the signs read, reminding the cage-bound commuters to be extra aware of motorcyclists sneaking up their six. The digital messages, the result of a cooperative venture between the Motorcycle Safety Foundation and Caltrans, could be seen across California in mid-February. The digital messages will return in May to mark Motorcycle Safety Month and again on June 21st, which is 2010 Ride to Work Day.
