Efforts to reduce motorcycle collisions, injuries, and deaths include programs that provide hands-on motorcycle training to riders. The trainings allow experienced riders to hone their skills. Motorcycle safety programs also include campaigns reminding riders of mandatory DOT-compliant helmet requirements, increasing other road users’ awareness of motorcycles, and campaigns to reduce impaired riding.. Enforcement operations focus on drivers and riders who make violations that increase the risk of crashes, including speeding, improper turning, running red lights, or failing to yield.
