IDOT launches "Start Seeing Motorcycles" campaign

SPRINGFIELD - Illinois Department of Transportation officials, the Illinois State Police, and other safety advocates gathered at the Old State Capitol in Springfield Wednesday morning to promote the launch of the "Start Seeing Motorcycles" campaign.

Officials say the statewide campaign aims to stress the importance of sharing the road with motorcyclists.  Officials also say the campaign aims to raise awareness of the number of motorcyclists who die from injuries sustained in crashes in an effort to lower than number.

The event, which began at 10:00 a.m., also recognized volunteers who participated in the annual Windshield Washing Project.
