Police block off an area after a motorcycle was struck by a minivan last week

A group of Windsor bikers have organized an awareness day for motorcycles on Windsor-Essex’s streets and plan to make riders more visible.

Organizers say statistics from Windsor Police show that there have been 30 crashes involving motorcycles between January 1st and July 25th this year and in total there were 38 collisions in all of 2011.

The awareness day will take place this Saturday August 18th starting at 11am at Anderson Funeral Home, 895 Ouellette Avenue. Bikers are asked to come out and join the group by filling the Windsor’s streets with riders wearing orange/green “CAN YOU SEE ME NOW” t-shirts. The shirts are available for $10.

The awareness campaign is planned due to all of all the motorcyclists that have been injured or killed by motorists that “just don’t take the time to look” according to the campaign’s Facebook event.
