KILLEEN,Texas (KWTX) Central Texas motorcycle enthusiasts are urging people to drive carefully around them.

On Sunday afternoon, hundreds of bikers gathered in Killeen to take part in the seventh annual Do You See Me Now Run of Central Texas.

Motorcyclists drove from Killeen to Lampasas on 190 to spread safety awareness.

The event was started back in 2011 when a few riders were concerned about the number of local motorcycles related accidents and fatalities.

"Just take that second look, don't just look right, look left too when you're making a turn. Don't take a chance on those yellow lights. Just please be aware," said motorcycle accident survivor Amy Miller.

The Texas Department of Transportation says on average a motorcyclists is killed on Texas roads every day.
