(KSL News) With warmer weather and increased gas prices, more motorcyclists are hitting the roads. So today a group of Utahns stopped by the State Capitol to promote safety.

Motorcyclists in Utah are 16 times more likely to be killed in a crash than people in cars or trucks.

A group called ABATE of Utah wants to remind drivers of the importance of sharing the road with motorcyclists and bicycles.

B.Y. Hepworth said, "We're trying to get everyone aware to look three and four times when they're at stop signs or there on the road. Just be aware the motorcyclists are out there, and share the road with us."

May is National Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Month.
