In 2017, nine motorcyclists were killed on local roads. The Lorain County Safe Community Coalition wants to help ensure safety for everyone on the road.
Motor vehicle drivers should remember to share the road with motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Drive defensively, drive sober, and pay attention to the road at all times.
Motorcyclists should brush up on their motorcycle knowledge and skills. Attend Motorcycle Ohio training in Cuyahoga, Summit, and Lake Counties. Visit www.motorcycle.ohio.gov for more information.
