Motorcyclists ready for harzards on the road

SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. (KTIV) -- If you're out on the roads this weekend, you'll probably notice a lot of motorcycles, and that's what riders are hoping for.

All too often, bikers are unseen by folks inside cars, which can lead to an accident.

Friday night, the Goldwing Road Riders Association put on a simulation crash in South Sioux City, Nebraska to help prepare its members for the real thing.

Members of the association are trained in first aid, CPR, and group riding techniques, and organizers say the drill brings all of those together.

Robert Roberts of the Goldwing Road Riders Association says, "Everybody gets really hyper. It's important that we maintain calmness and go about a routine, so that we don't leave anything out."

Roberts says the goal of the drill is for members to be able to take charge on an accident scene before the professionals arrive.
