"Making Roadways Safer for Motorcycles" Motorcyle Safety Video
The Florida DOT safety office, through the University of South Florida Center for Urban Transportation Research and the University of Florida Technology Transfer Center, developed a video to help motorcycle riders and – more importantly – engineers and public works officials be more aware of minor roadway changes that can severaly impact motorcyclists.
The video addresses such things as potholes, uneven pavement, and grooved pavement during resurfacing. It recently received a 2011 National Roadway Safety Award from the Roadway Safety Foundation and the Federal Highway Administration.
