*TRAFFIC TIP* As the summer weather approaches many of you may notice an increase of motorcycles on the roadway. With the increase of motorcycles it is important to remember to look both ways prior to entering an intersection. We also recommend a second check to ensure you did not miss a motorcycle in your blind spot. Be mindful of motorcycles on the road and before switching lanes make sure that there is not a motorcycle riding next to you. Blinkers are also very helpful for motorcycle riders as it indicates to them of your intent to switch lanes so they can be sure allow sufficient space for your lane change. Motorcycle riders – It is important that you use caution while riding and be sure to wear the proper protective equipment. Remember a helmet can save your life. (MD) #PFPDTRAFFICTIP #PFPDSAFETY
