State Patrol releases motorcycle safety video

The Washington State Patrol posted a motorcycle safety video on Monday after it reported there have been 466 motorcycle-involved crashes on Washington State roadways since the start of the year.

Two motorcyclists were killed last week in crashes on Highway 167 in the Kent/Auburn area.

The video tips from a motorcycle trooper are to help make sure riders stay safe and prevent collisions. The State Patrol noted that the number of motorcycle collisions increase during the summer months.
