May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. As we continue to shout out “Look Twice Save A Life” fatalities have continued to increase in Jacksonville since 2017 with 2021 showing the largest increase in motorcycle fatalities. Jacksonville Beach and Downtown Jacksonville recorded the largest number of motorcycle fatalities. We believe motorcycles will increase on our roadways as gas prices continue to soar. Motorcyclist may choose to ride their motorcycle more often to save on fuel cost. It is essential that we all work together to reduce the number of motorcycle crashes in Jacksonville.
