Motorcycle Accident

With warmer temperatures drivers can expect more two-wheeled vehicles on the road.

The Polk County Sheriff’s office is reminding everyone to keep an eye out for bicyclists and motorcyclists.

In 2012, the Department of Transportation investigated 54 motorcycle crashes and 56 fatalities.

The highest number of deaths occurred in May with 12 deaths.

The Sheriff’s office also encourages all bicycle and motorcycle riders to wear helmets, even though it is not required by law.
