ATLANTIC POLICE CHIEF STEVE GREEN REMINDS MOTORISTS TO WATCH OUT FOR MOTORCYCLES
(Atlantic) Motorcycles are starting to come out of the garage and Atlantic Police Chief Steve Green reminds us that motorcycles blend into heavy traffic.
“The motorcycle is almost camouflaged by those vehicles, you may not see one that is following the vehicle that you’re watching come by, you see the vehicle go by, you step on the gas and there is the bike,” said Green.
Chief Green says do a double take before pulling out into an intersection.
“People just need to be aware to look twice both directions,” said Green. “There is no place in Atlantic that somebody usually needs to be that an extra two seconds is going to make a big difference in their arrival time and that can make a very big difference in some motorcyclist’s life.”
Chief Green says motorcycle operators need to realize that they are blending in and reduce their speed underneath the speed limit.
