RENO, Nev. (News 4-Fox 11) — The Nevada Rider Motorcycle Safety Program launched an intersection safety campaign to help reduce motorcycle fatalities statewide.
The campaign is being held online and will focus on two motorist driving behaviors: gauging a motorcycle’s speed and looking three times before making a left-hand turn.
According to the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), there were 46 motorcycle fatalities in 2019, making up 16 percent of Nevada’s total roadway fatalities that year. One of the leading causes of these fatalities is motorists making left turns in front of motorcycles in intersections.
The storytelling and illustrative campaign videos showcase the two dangerous driving behaviors of focus. Drivers will be reminded to slow down, look left, right and left once again, and be aware of their surroundings before making that left turn.
