TX-DOT is asking drivers to remember to share the road and look twice for motorcycles ad part of their campaign for National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month.

In Texas alone, 501 motorcyclists were killed and another 21 hundred were seriously injured in crashes last year. 

As part of the campaign, drivers are urged to look twice for motorcycles, especially at intersections.

Avoid turning in front of an oncoming motorcycle or following one too closely.
