Look Twice ... Look again ...

SHARE THE ROAD is a motorcycle awareness program that promotes driver awareness and increases understanding of how motorcycles behave in traffic.  ABATE of Nebraska, Inc. provides trained volunteers to present this program to the public.  We believe that education and training are the best ways to prevent, and thereby reduce, motorcycle/automobile accidents. 
Research shows that three fourths of crashes involving a motorcycle also involves another motor vehicle, which is usually at fault.  Considering crash statistics and the increasing number of motorcyclists, the key to a safer riding mix is learning to SHARE THE ROAD.
Motorcycles are very different from automobiles - they are much smaller in size & are harder to see then automobiles.  The failure of motorists to see motorcyclists in traffic is the most common cause of crashes.  Car drivers who are involved in an accident with a motorcycle often do not see the motorcycle prior to the accident, or until it is too late to avoid having the accident. 
The greatest risk area for a conflict between a motorcycle and a automobile is at an intersection...whether it is in the middle of an urban area, a driveway on a residential street, or anywhere where traffic may cross your path of travel.  Over one half of motorcycle/car accidents are caused by drivers entering a rider's right-of-way.  Cars that turn left in from of motorcyclists, including cars turning left from the lane to the right, and cars on side streets that pull into the motorcyclists lane are the biggest dangers.
The fact remains.....the best way to prevent any accident is through Education, Safety, and Motorcycle Awareness Programs like SHARE THE ROAD.
