Warmer Weather Brings Motorcycles Back on the Road

Published by Idaho STAR Program on Monday, February 09, 2015
BOISE  – With the arrival of sunnier, warmer days, motorcycles will be back on the roads in higher numbers. Idaho STAR, the state’s motorcycle safety program, would like to encourage drivers and riders to be alert, sober and courteous, and to share the road so we can all get where we are headed safely. 
 
Motorcycle riders are also reminded to be prepared for the unexpected, make themselves visible to other motorists while on the road, and wear protective gear to help minimize injury. Crash reports show that 67 percent of motorcycle fatal crashes in Idaho are associated with rider error.

To reduce the risk of crashes, motorcycle riders are encouraged to participate in motorcycle rider training. Idaho STAR offers eight different courses for riders of all levels of experience and ability, from people just thinking about buying a motorcycle, all the way up to veteran riders. There are 15 training locations across Idaho. To find one near you, visit idahostar.org
