Biker Hopes to Reduce Arkansas Motorcycle Accidents Through Safety Ride
Summer has arrived in Arkansas and that means more motorcycles on the road. But did you know that this time of year also notoriously sees a drastic increase in the number of Arkansas motorcycle accidents that occur? In fact, the month of June had the highest number of highway fatalities in 2012 as compared to other months of the year.
To help reduce the number of Arkansas motorcycle accidents that occur, one man will soon be stopping in Little Rock to spread the message about the importance of motorcycle safety. An article from THV 11 News explains that Nate Hudson is currently on a 111-day motorcycle ride, during which he plans to stop at the capitols of all 50 states to spread the message about the need for motorcyclists to protect themselves with safety gear and defensive driving skills. He is also asking all motorists to look twice in traffic for motorcycles before making a maneuver.
Since Arkansas is one of the few states that does not require motorcyclists to wear a helmet when riding, Hudson will focus on discussing the need for motorcyclists to use protective gear during his stop in Little Rock.
The ride should conclude some time in August.
