It's shaping up to be a busy week of heavy motorcycle traffic in our area with the Harley-Davidson BikeFest and Roar on the Shore. Drivers are encouraged to pay extra attention to their surroundings this week. Roar on the Shore begins Thursday. The parade route from the casino to
Perry Square will be an area to take extra precaution. Already in full swing is the Harley-Davidson BikeFest, so W. 12th Street is one of the busiest spots for motorcycles this week, especially during rush hour. As a precaution, signs have been placed along Route 5 near the Harley dealership, alerting drivers to watch for motorcycles. It's the responsibility of both drivers on bikes and in cars to be on the lookout. The bike events wrap up Sunday afternoon.
