Motorcyclists urged to drive safely

Warmer weather is allowing more motorcyclists the opportunity to go for a ride.
The Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety encourages riders to watch out for potholes and other debris on the roadways that often result from a hard winter.
Motorcyclists are more vulnerable than passenger vehicle occupants in crashes and the Coalition reminds riders to always wear protective gear including a Department of Transportation (DOT) compliant helmet while riding.
Commercial motor vehicle program manager Chris Luebbert says always be prepared when you head out for a ride.
