September is Motorcycle Awareness Month and people are being reminded to look twice for motorcycles.

September marks the start of the riding season for many motorcyclists in New Zealand. It is the month when over half of all motorcyclists get their bikes out of the garage, get back on the road and look forward to the long summer of riding.

It’s an important time for all motorists to know that they’ll see more motorcycles on the road. The Council is reminding people to look twice, especially at intersections and before changing lanes, and to check blind spots. Look twice and save a life.
