“Watch for Motorcycles” Signs Posted around Dallas

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on June 19, 2012

Allstate Insurance Co. is putting up signs to alert drivers to motorcyclists in 25 metropolitan areas to try to stop crashes and save lives.

There were almost 600 motorcycle related accidents in Dallas County in 2010, according to the Texas Department of Transportation, and 35% occurred at intersections. On average three motorcyclists are killed every day at U.S. intersections.

Drivers should take that one extra second at intersections to look left and right for motorcyclist to keep our roads clear, said Ketih Rutman, vice president of Allstate’s consumer household unit.

Some tips from Allstate for motorists who are sharing the road with motorcyclists are:

  • Look left, right and left again for motorcycles since they can hide in blind spots.
  • Be extra cautious when going through intersections.
  • Have a greater following distance behind motorcycles.
  • Be aware that motorcyclists adjust their position in the lane frequently in order to be seen more by motorists.

Allstate will put up these signs in Dallas at the intersection of North Buckner Boulevard and Garland Road.

If you or a loved one has ever been the victim of a motorcycle accident, you should contact the Law Firm of W.T. Johnson today to get the justice you and your family deserve.
