If you drive a motorcycle in San Bernardino County or any county, I suggest you take extra precautions. Statistics show that four counties in California, including San Bernardino, have a high number of motorcycle deaths and injuries.
The California Highway Patrol is working to promote motorcycle safety on California freeways and roads by reducing the number of fatal accidents and injuries by implementing a 24-month traffic safety program. This program will be in effect until September 2011. The program will include a public education campaign with two public service announcements promoting the use of helmets. In addition, 15 motorcycle safety presentations will be conducted in high-risk cities. This program is being funded by the California office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
