If you've seen the message, "Changing lanes? Look twice for motorcycles," while driving this weekend, you may have looked over your shoulder or given motorcyclists a little extra room.

That's exactly what the Ohio Department of Transportation wants you to do.

According to ODOT, 68 motorcycle riders have been killed on Ohio roadways since May 1. ODOT put out the message to watch out for motorcycles on freeway message boards to remind drivers to be aware and be careful.

"We can all play a small part in making our roads safer," ODOT said.
