May is “Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month.” New York state says there has been a rise in crashes and deaths in recent years.

A motorcycle safety training course was held Friday morning at Hudson Valley Community College in Troy. 
Deadly motorcycle crashes in New York have increased by 50% since 2019.

The Governor's Traffic Safety Committee has some tips when riding a motorcycle. That includes taking a course to develop basic techniques, wear appropriate gear for comfort and protection and wear bright clothing.
