KANSAS CITY, Mo. — May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. With warmer weather comes more motorcycle wrecks. Many times, it’s the fault of the driver of a car or a truck.
FOX 4’s Mark Alford has been riding for four years and knows first-hand the importance of motorcycle safety.
“I can’t stress how important a motorcycle safety foundation course is if you plan to ride,” he said. “It not only makes you a better motorcyclist, it also makes you a better driver, and that will save a life.”
On Tuesday’s morning show, Alford and motorcycle enthusiast Larry Parks from Harley’s Riders Academy explain some of the tips that could save a life. Watch the video below to see Alford demonstrate some of the techniques that motorcyclists learn in safety classes.
