Indiana Motorcycle Safety Should be Top Priority
Motorcycle safety should be a priority for all riders. Did you know that in Indiana there is special training available for motorcyclists? Check with your local BMV if you are a rider, to ensure you receive proper training and licensing. Additional training is available through the organization ABATE www.abateofindiana.org/. (American Bikers Aimed Toward Safety). Remember to wear your helmet.
An encouraging piece of news was just recently released. Motorcycle deaths dropped 2 percent in the first nine months of 2010. The Governors Highway Safety Association just released its report. Unfortunately the report also indicates that the trend was not holding for the last three months of that year.
Drivers, remember we must all share the same roads. The motorcyclist is entitled to use the roads and is entitled to be safe from inattention. The number one cause of motorcycle car collisions is blamed on the driver not seeing the motorcycle. Put down that cell phone. Keep alert for all other traffic including motorcycles. Let’s all be safe on the road.
