Wayne Castille, of the Acadiana Chapter of the Motorcycle Awareness Campaign joined “Mornings With Ken & Bernie” to discuss motorcycle safety.   Castille said,

“we are on the road in larger  numbers than ever and we do have a right to the road and we just want people to look out for us”.

According to Castille there is good news concerning motorcycle fatalities.  He said,

“for 2011 motorcycle fatalities were down 40% from 2010.”

He went on to say that automobile drivers were not at fault in all accidents.  Statistics show that 34% of fatal motorcycle crashes were single vehicle crashes where the motorcyclists were at fault.

Castille said most accidents involving automobiles and motorcycles were caused by inattention on the part of the car’s driver.  He stressed the importance of double checking intersections before entering them, not talking on a cell phone or texting while driving.
