TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Released by The Tyler Police Department:
This Thursday, Friday and Saturday the main streets of Tyler will have hundreds of motorcycles visiting our city for the 2015 Texas State Hog Rally held at Harvey Hall Convention Center.
Tyler Police Department is asking motorist to make a special effort to share the road and look twice for motorcycles.
Drivers who are involved in striking a motorcycle usually say that they simply didn't see the motorcycle until it was too late. Due to a narrow profile, a motorcycle can be easily hidden in a car's blind spots or masked by objects or backgrounds outside a car (bushes, fences, bridges, etc.).
Take an extra moment to look for motorcycles, whether you're changing lanes or turning at intersections.
