Officers with the Broken Arrow Police Department began the 2013 round of the "Share the Road" civilian motorcycle safety courses over the weekend.

The weekend safety course kicked off the first of several courses planned for the year in Green Country. The six hour class focuses on motorcycle safety, as well as techniques needed to avoid collision.

296 people in Tulsa County died in motorcycle crashes in 2011 according to the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office.

Officer Todd Geiger is one of the instructors who teach on behalf of the Oklahoma Safety Office and Broken Arrow Police Department.

“We put this course together for civilian riders so that they can gain a little training and experience how to be better motorcyclists and safer on the road,” said Officer Geiger.

Barbara Buffington is an avid motorcyclist and was one of the safety course participants.

“I’ve taken this course four times and it has absolutely taught me something new every time that I have taken it,” said Buffington.
