BELLEVUE — The members of Chapter K2, Bellevue, would like to remind drivers that May is Motorist Awareness Month. Chapter members belong to the Gold Wing Road Riders Association of Ohio, Region D.

To start the May is Motorist Awareness campaign, the members did a meet and greet at the Bellevue post office last week. This was in conjunction with the post office cancellation stamp in honor of Motorist Awareness. If you collect cancellation stamps and would like a copy, contact the Bellevue post office or Alice Schauss at (440) 839-2194. You can get a copy of the stamp until the end of May.

The purpose of the "Ride Aware" campaign is to bring attention to the need to have drivers made aware of the Motorcyclists that use the Road and Byways of the Great Nation. The campaign's goal is to reduce the number of crashes, conflict situations and close calls arising between motorcycles, trikes and other roadway users in our evolving, modern high environment.

The Division's two-fold mission is to provide information to motorcyclists on means to reduce conflict with other roadway users and the environment in which they ride; and the other half is to inform motorists of means to reduce crashes, near misses and conflicts with motorcyclists.

The Truth Hurts

My husband and I used to be on the motorcycle all the time. So, when I say this, it is not with ignorance on behalf of what it's like to be a rider: Bikers are just as guilty as people in cars. I think it's total BS how a lot of bikers think that because they are on two wheels everyone should "respect" them. I have had countless bikes pull out in front of me or ride my bumper while I am driving around with children. Frankly, you don't own the road. Mutual respect is needed. Just because I "look twice" doesn't mean some of these idiots are going to get smarter.

thank you "The Truth Hurts" i too am tired of motorcyclists breaking the laws, and weaving in and out of traffic.. putting everyone in danger, especially themselves..but we are all told that it is the automobiles fault...

i hate it when i am driving on the highway, and am anywhere close to a motorcyclist.. because they sometimes get right on your back bumper to make it more aerodynamic for them, but putting you in a very harmful situation!!!

if another car would be following you that closely, they would be ticketed.. or if another automobile were swerving in and out the way that some bikers do, and riding up beside you , passing you improperly, they would be ticketed.. the same should be done for motorcyclists!!!

there is plenty of open road, and lots of lanes to chose from ... i urge all bikers to obey the laws, and in doing so , keep it safe for everyone!!!

it is not only your life and safety that is on the line... imagine the thoughts and agony that anyone lives with if they hit and harm, or kill someone out there who is pushing the laws to the limit
