For the next week, hundreds of thousands of bikers will be on our roads heading to Sturgis South Dakota for the 71st annual Black Hills rally. The Sturgis Rally kicked off this weekend and will last until August 14.
Since I-35 is a major connection to our brothers and sisters in the south, and I-70 a major connection from the east, our city will see a large amount of those riders passing through.
During this time, as well as at all times, motorist are encouraged to pay extra attention when changing lanes as well as when making left turns.
The failure of motorists to detect and recognize motorcycles in traffic is the predominating cause of motorcycle accidents.
Please look for our two-wheeled brothers and sisters before making left turns and look twice before changing lanes.
