SNELLVILLE -- Snellville councilman Bobby Howard and three local Allstate agents are hoping to make the city a little safer for motorcycle riders.
Howard and Allstate insurance agents Dale Gainer, Ralph Martin and Todd Croker have plans to install "motorcycle crossing" signs at several intersections across Snellville, a news release said.
Howard, Gainey and Martin -- along with residents of Snellville and "members of the local motorcycle community" -- will have the new signage showcased at 10 a.m. Wednesday at 2984 Main Street West.
"According to the Centers for Disease Control (and Prevention), since 2000, there has been a dramatic increase in motorcyle-related injuries and deaths," the city of Snellville news release said. "The City of Snellville and Allstate want to make the roadways safer for all motorists and remind everyone to be more careful."
The signs were donated by Allstate.
