Strongsville Second Cuyahoga County City to Get Motorcycle Signs

Allstate plans to install the warning signs in 20 cities across the country this year.

On May 9, a "Watch for Motorcycles" warning sign will be installed at the Royalton and Prospect Roads intersection.

Strongsville is the second city in Cuyahoga County to receive the signs from Allstate's Once is Never Enough (O.N.E.) porgram in the Cleveland-area. The signs will be a permanent fixture and a reminder to watch for two-wheeled motorists sharing the road.  

Allstate hopes the signs will remind all motorists to look left, look right and look left again for motorcyclists before going through an intersection, where statistics show 46 percent of all fatal multi-vehicle crashes for motorcyclists occur, according to a prepared statement.

Euclid was the first city in the area to get the sign at the Lakeshore Boulevard and E. 185th street intersection. Allstate plans to put more up signs in 20 other cities in the country this summer. 

The sign is yellow and shaped like a diamond and reads "Watch for Motorcycles."

An Allstate representative will attend the sign installation to talk about why Allstate is concerned about motorcycle safety.

The event is at 10 a.m. Thursday. Parking is available at Speedway, 21043 Royalton Rd.

What's next; Watch for Little Old Ladies Crossing, Watch Out For Bicyclists, how about Caution Watch for Everything? Why do we need signs to remind us what was on our Drivers Permit test. My solution- have motorists retake the permit test every 10 years. This would get incapable senoirs and misinformed drivers off the road.

We should have had a sign saying to watch out for striking teachers in school driveways.
