Besides asking all vehicle drivers to "look twice, save a life", IDOT and the Illinois Motorcycle Dealers Association are asking cyclist to "gear up, ride smart".

They are urging motorcyclists to wear highly visible clothing Including jacket, gloves and helmet.

They also suggest that the bikes go through a safety-check and the riders take advantage of a free training class.
