(LEX 18) – Grass clippings may seem like a nuisance while you’re out mowing the lawn, but they can be deadly for motorcyclists.

It only takes just a handful of grass to cause motorcyclists to slide out of control. Not only is it dangerous, but it can also land you a hefty fine.

Fines for blowing grass into the roadway can range from $50 to $2,500.

“It’s kind of heartbreaking. It’s very upsetting because it’s something really avoidable and the person that becomes a victim had no choice,” Ron Litton, the Service Manager at Indian Motorcycle explained to LEX 18.
