In his remarks, Assistant Chief Kevin Davis stressed the need for all who are out on the roads to drive safely. “In crashes between cars and motorcycles, drivers of cars are at fault more than half of the time,” said Assistant Chief Davis. In 2012, there were 10 fatal motorcycle accidents in Prince George’s County. In seven of those accidents, the driver of the car was at fault.
As temperatures rise, and many motorcyclists head out on the roadways, PGPD is asking drivers and motorcyclists to keep an eye out for each other. PGPD officers handed out educational information to both motorcyclists and drivers during the event.
