Be alert for a large number of motorcycles on area roadways today as the Lone Star Rally concludes on Galveston and patrons head home.
It’s been a weekend of concerts, exhibits and vendors that is expected to bring more than 115-million-dollars to the local economy.
All streets will reopen after the end of the rally on Sunday night but expect lingering closures.
The Galveston Police Department warns there will be upwards of 250,000 motorcycles on the road today, and offer these suggestions for safety:
-- Always check your blind spots before merging or changing lanes.
-- Use caution when passing and always use signals.
-- Allow for more distance between vehicles and motorcycles.
-- Increase awareness at intersections.
-- Don’t text and drive.
