ILLINOIS -- The state kicked off Motorcycle Awareness Month Wednesday. It's the 30-year for the campaign. State leaders urge drivers to "Start Seeing Motorcycles."

The kick off came just hours after a motorcyclist was killed in McLean County.

Nearly 150-other riders were killed last year accounting for 15% of all motor vehicle deaths.
