With over 1,200 miles of sandy beaches on both the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, Florida is a Mecca for many.Visitfloridaonline.com reports that 75 million people visit Florida each year and over 350 thousand move to Florida.
Florida also has many registered motorcycles traveling its roads to enjoy the scenery and to provide a less expensive way of getting around.
Ridesmartflorida.com reported that in 2018, there were 532 motorcycle fatalities in Florida.
ABATE of Florida Inc. is a state-wide non-profit organization of motorcycle enthusiasts from all walks of life, promoting motorcycle safety awareness and encouraging continuing rider training and political awareness.
Since there are so many visitors and new residents to Florida each year, ABATE of SW Florida would like to be sure they understand how to share the road with motorcyclists:
- Obey all traffic laws, signs and signals
- Constantly check and expect to see motorcycles
- Motorcycles are smaller than cars or trucks and it can be more difficult to judge their approaching speed
- Look, look, and look again at traffic intersections before you turn or pull out
- Allow a three second “Space Cushion” when following a motorcycle
- There are 7 to 9 blind spots in an average vehicle
- Give motorcycles the same respect and courtesy that you want for yourself and other motorists
