🏍🏍🏍The Casper Police Department (CPD) has partnered with the American Bikers for Awareness, Training and Education (ABATE) of Central Wyoming for their annual Spring Awareness Parade in Casper on Saturday, May 4th 2019.
The parade will start at the East side Walmart at 12:00pm and end at Oil City Harley-Davidson on Glenn Road at 12:45pm. Around four hundred riders are anticipated to attend and participate in this event.
CPD will be providing route security and traffic control.
The event marks the beginning of May as Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. Together, CPD and ABATE of Central Wyoming hope to raise awareness for motorcycle safety as part of the “Look Twice, Safe a Life,” campaign.
Sergeant Jeff Bullard, who oversees the Traffic Division of the Casper Police Department, offers the following safety tips to car drivers to prepare for motorcycle season, “Always check your blind spots, leave room between your car and a motorcyclist, dim your headlights as you pass riders at night time, always use your turn signals, and be cautious when taking left turns because riders can hide easily in your blind spots.”
CPD advises the community to use caution around the parade route between the hours of 11:30am and 1:00pm on Saturday, May 4th and to stay vigilant for motorcycles when traveling the roadways.
ABATE is a not for profit, grass roots organization that is committed to educating motorcyclists and the general public about motorcycling.
