GAB: Signs remind motorists to 'watch for motorcycles'

SNELLVILLE -- Tuesday kicked off National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. To commemorate the occasion, Allstate Insurance received approval from the Federal Highway Administration to work with local traffic authorities in installing signs along Athens Highway and Grayson Parkway in Snellville.

Allstate has worked with local traffic authorities to identify the most dangerous roads based on extensive crash statistics for Atlanta and surrounding areas.
