May brings nice weather to the northeast and with it, some exceptional motorcycle riding. However, with the freedom, excitement and serenity that riding brings comes responsibility.In 2016, motorcycles made up 3% of all registered vehicles in the US but accounted for 13% of all traffic fatalities; 26% of those riders were alcohol-impaired. It's easy to take enjoyment too far but traffic safety responsibility rests upon riders and drivers alike; a statement issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) states "When motorcycles and other vehicles collide, it is usually the other (non-motorcycle) driver who violates the motorcyclist's right of way".The New York National Guard wants you to be motorcycle-aware, ride responsibly, look twice and stay safe this summer!
