Caution, motorcycle awareness urged while traveling
PICKERINGTON, OH – May 25, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The American Motorcyclist Association recognizes and appreciates the dedication and sacrifice of all who gave their lives in service to our country and extends its deep gratitude to their families and friends this Memorial Day, May 28.
“Memorial Day presents an opportunity for us to reflect on the many freedoms we, as motorcyclists and as Americans, enjoy and to honor the dedication and sacrifice of the men and women who gave their lives to secure and preserve those freedoms,” said AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman.
Millions of Americans will use the long holiday weekend to enjoy the freedom of the road, traveling to events, family picnics, beaches and other attractions.
With the increased travel, the AMA encourages motorists to be alert to motorcyclists who will be on the road to participate in AMA-sanctioned events, memorial parades and freedom rides, or simply visiting family and friends.
“Distracted or impaired driving already present a grave danger to motorcyclists, as well as to pedestrians and others on the roads,” Dingman said. “With the roadways more crowded with holiday travelers, we urge extra caution for everyone in an effort to ensure a safe Memorial Day weekend. And we urge drivers and motorcyclists alike to be alert and sober.”
