Texas drivers urged to 'Look Twice" this May
EL PASO, Texas —
The Texas Department of Transportation is pushing its "Look Twice" campaign this May for motorcycle safety.
Last year, motorcyclist deaths went up by 6 percent compared to 2015.
El Paso has only seen two motorcyclist deaths this year.
There are a number of things that motorcyclists have to remain aware of, like the terrain and weather elements.
Riders are encouraged to continue their education to keep up to date.
"First of all if you were a new rider take the course," said Dustin Corliss of the El Paso Motorcycle Coalition, "And the benefit and the cost of $200-$300 for what you'll learn defensively for riding a motorcycle, that's a must."
Drivers should also share the road to keep everyone safe.
