Riding For Safety in Richland

Posted: Updated:
Richland, Wash. -- About a 100 motorcycles were out in force today in Richland trying to raise awareness about motorcycle safety.

The riders work for Batelle and have been supporting the program since 2003 as part of National Ride to Work Day. Riders say that often other cars don't allow enough space for motorcycles and don't pay enough attention to them.

Organizers say people should be more tolerant towards motorcycles because they decrease traffic and create a lot less pollution than a car or truck. Plus, more and more people in the Tri-Cities are using them.
