Every year, the majority of traffic fatalities involving motorcycles occurs between May and September, a time of year which has been dubbed “riding season” due to the influx of motorcyclists on the roads. Motorcycles represent slightly less than 3 percent of total vehicle registrations. However, motorcycle fatalities represent almost 14 percent of all vehicle fatalities statewide. While the actual causes of these crashes are often difficult to determine, it has been found that there are several problem areas over which motorcycle riders themselves have a degree of control. In anticipation of this year’s riding season, the Illinois Department of Transportation’s Division of Safety aims to protect Illinois motorists with the implementation of the “Gear Up” campaign, a motorcycle safety initiative.
