The Los Angeles Police Department is seeking to get the word out about May’s designation as Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. To that end, they will be holding a press conference in Panorama City on Friday in which various commanding officers and other representatives will be speaking about the issue. Automobile operators will be asked to respect the rights of their fellow travelers throughout the month and beyond, and motorcyclists will be asked to do their part by taking the steps necessary to increase visibility when out and about. At the press conference, the department plans to issue a number of tips to riders and have helmets on hand as an example of the type of gear that should be worn. They will also bring by a motorcycle that has been through a fatal crash and has the damage to prove it.
