LOOKING TWICE FOR MOTORCYCLES.



Students in Burke County High School’s driver’s education program got an anti-crash course on motorcycle safety. Members of the Red Knights Motorcycle Club, Georgia Chapter 23, recently visited their classroom to encourage them to protect themselves and the bikers they share the road with. In conjunction with the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, they worked with young drivers to remind them to look twice at every intersection. “The most common motorcycle accidents are caused when drivers turn left in front of motorcycles,” Red Knights member James Cobb said. “We tend to blend into the background.” The program will be taught at BCHS every semester. Teaching the course were, from left, Cobb and fellow Red Knights members Demian Ingram, Frank Bowman, Jerry Bishop and Chris Mortley.
