What a beautiful day it was today. So nice that I saw a few motorcycles out and about.
Motorcycles are so rare to see in the winter that drivers tend to forget about them. The temperatures will soon be reaching "t-shirt" weather and bikes will be everywhere.
It's particularly important for drivers on the highways to start paying extra attention when changing lanes and performing other maneuvers that pose a risk to bikers in traffic at highway speeds.
Bicycle traffic is also beginning to appear on the city streets along with many other "nice weather" hazards such as kids outside playing near the road or pedestrians, dog walkers and joggers.
Human traffic should be aware of their surroundings enough to stay safe around motor vehicle traffic but many pedestrians or cyclists are killed or injured every year because someone made a poor judgment call or the driver didn't see the pedestrian or the pedestrian didn't see the car.
Just commit to always using a little extra caution while behind the wheel.
