ILLINOIS -- With warmer weather, motorcycles will be out on the streets. It can be a dangerous time of year for drivers and riders. In Springfield Wednesday, IDOT and state police joined forces to talk about safety.

They do it every year around this time because more people are out riding. In 2013, more than 150 people were killed while riding. State troopers say motorcyclists can be most at risk out on the road. They remind drivers to wear helmets and protective gear.
