Motorcycle season has come a little earlier this year to us in the New Jersey / New York area thanks to Mother Nature and a lack of snow and salt on the roads.  All of us who ride understand the risk inherent in motorcycle riding, but in the early parts of the season, we often see motorcycle accidents caused by distracted car drivers.

There were a powerful series of commercials (such as the one below) aimed at motorcycle riders, which I would like to see in our area.  It’s message is about reducing risk.  Perhaps even more effective would be similar commercials raising the awareness of car drivers (affectionally often referred to as “cagers”) to be alert and attentive of motorcycles.
