share the road campaign in californiaIn an effort to make the roads safer for bikers, The California Highway Patrol has started displaying ‘Share the road, look twice for motorcyclists’ on over 700 signs across the state.

Robert Gladden, director of the US’s Motorcycle Safety Foundation said: “The Motorcycle Safety Foundation, along with many thousands of motorcyclists, applaud the California Highway Patrol, the Office of Traffic Safety and CalTrans for recognising the importance of motorcycle safety and for utilising this very effective medium to promote highway safety.

“We hope that the overwhelming positive response we have received will encourage more motorcycle safety messages like this to be displayed in the future.”

What a great move by The California Highway Patrol and no doubt this campaign should be repeated in other states. Bikers should contact their State Highway Patrol and ask them to follow California’s initiative.
