Windshield Washing Program

In May, motorcycle chapters and organizations partner to promote awareness of motorcycles on our roads. Volunteers wash vehicle windshields and distribute motorcycle safety information at rest areas throughout the state, reminding motorists to start seeing motorcycles.

Since the program began in 1987, motorcycle chapters and organizations have reached more than 35,000 motorists to alert them that May is Motorcycle Awareness Month and to remind drivers to share the road with motorcycles.
