New signs in Texas could tell car drivers to "Share the Road" with motorcycles

Would road signs make car drivers more aware that they need to share the road with motorcycle riders?

A story in TheFacts.com of Brazoria County, Texas concerns the city of Richwood, Texas, and the proposal of new signs with the picture of a motorcycle and message "Share the Road".

Texas Motorcycle Rights Association II proposed the signs to the Richwood city council. City officials like the idea of the signs, but need more information before making a decision. There are already 49 signs placed in eight cities across Texas.

Do you think the signs would make a difference? Do you think they should be placed on all roads? Leave a comment and tell us your opinion.

I live just north of this small texas town and signs saying * Share the road* might sound like a good idea,but with most drivers claiming they do not see the motorcycle driver, do we think that signs posted along road sides will be seen? However it is a step in the right direction to bring more awareness of the point trying to be made. *Share The Road*
