An insurance company added more signs for safety


Motorcycle crashes, unfortunately, start to be quite popular and this is why Allstate Insurance Company decided to install motorcycle warning signs in different intersections in more than 30 cities in the US. The designing process of the sign took two years and included more than 100 temporary installations in various US cities between 2010 and 2011. The sign is very easy to get as is says Watch for Motorcycles. The Insurance Company created it as part of the Once is Never Enough program that has as main objective to encourage people to be more careful at intersections and look twice for motorcycles. Fatality Analysis Reporting System made a study and apparently a third of the motorcycle fatalities that occurred in Maryland were results of crashes at intersections back in 2010. The National Traffic Safety Administration says that 46% of all multi-vehicles crashes resulting in fatality for motorcyclists take place at intersections. By adding these extra signs, motorcyclists should feel safer and drivers should be more aware of the danger. Allstate Insurance Company worked with local traffic authorities to find out which are the most dangerous intersections for riders to install the warning signs and avoid casualties. For example, in Baltimore, signs have been installed at the intersection of President and Pratt, this actually one of the most dangerous intersections in Baltimore involving riders.



The Allstate Company manages to help almost 16 million households taking care of their goods and their future. The insurance products offered by Allstate can be obtained through independent agencies, Allstate exclusive financial representatives and Allstate agencies. Back in 2011, the company offered $28 million for thousands of nonprofit organizations and a lot of other causes everywhere in North America.
