BECKLEY -

As the days get warmer, more people hit the roads and are out and about enjoying their day.

But if you're on a motorcycle, that might not be all good news. One local man is raising awareness of motor vehicle accidents through his Motorcycle Awareness Campaign, a nonprofit organization in which all donations go directly to raising awareness and campaigning to help motorcyclists stay safe on the highways.

"I had a nephew killed a few years ago on a motorcycle accident. I got in this campaign through my oldest brother and he's been doing this ever since his son got killed in a motor vehicle accident. The lady that killed him just didn't see him," said David Webb.

Last year, the campaign put up over 250 posters spreading their message over 8 counties in West Virginia.
