‘Look twice’ for motorcycles, DMV warns

With the approach of spring, the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles is warning motorists to “look twice” for motorcyclists to help avoid collision.

DMV said 88 motorcyclists were killed and 629 seriously injured in Virginia crashes in 2018; of these fatal crashes, two-thirds involved another vehicle.

“Motorcycles may look farther away than they actually are, and it can be difficult to judge a motorcycle’s speed,” said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. “Car drivers should take an extra moment and look twice for motorcycles when changing lanes, turning at intersections, pulling out of driveways or pulling into traffic.”
