    Ohio HB9 (Red Light Amendment) was signed by Governor Kasich in mid April. Ohio HB9 amends Ohio HB 154 previously passed in last session. Ohio HB9 grants BICYCLES ONLY the right to treat a mal-functioning traffic signal as a stop sign and to proceed through it after a reasonable time has elapsed.

Annual Member Contest

  All members of ABATE take notice,

    I’m not sure if everyone knows of this contest; it goes like this. For every NEW member that you sign up as a member of ABATE and put your name as the Taken By on the form or napkin (I’ll take a membership on anything as long as I can read it and the information is there). I track all taken by applications resulting in the Renew column seen below. Unfortunately on the State level that does not count in this contest. Only NEW members count. The person who brings the most new members receives a free single membership. This year’s winner and runner up are shown below. This contest runs from June through May.

  (6-7-17)     Wow here it is half way through the year and I feel I need to highlight that 2017 is the Year of the Member. Let’s get our member numbers back up where they deserve to be for the big 40. Next year (2018) ABATE of Ohio will be 40 years old. That’s right anyone born after 1978 wasn’t even alive when Ohio had a mandatory Helmet Law. Almost 40 years of telling the government when something just isn’t right, educating riders on safe riding practices and trying to get people in cars to look for us and stop running over us. That stuff hurts (substitute any word you want for stuff.)......................( Read more....)

  (6-7-17)     As I mentioned in last month's article, the MSF curriculum was inserted into the budget sent to the Governor. A line item veto was requested by Motorcycle Ohio, Abate and other interested parties, which was not granted. At this writing, various legal departments are examining the potential effect this will have on the Motorcycle Ohio program and other training programs. More info as it become clearer...............

  (6-7-17)     Our stats; in 2016 we had 1 crash and 1 fatality to date. In 2017 we have 23 crashes and 1 fatality to date. It is going to be a long year. There are really many factors that contribute to these stats and we as bikers need to talk about riding safe and respectful. If we think we don’t need to worry about it, we will just keep loosening our right to ride free. If we have a nice day by all means get out and go for a ride but take it easy. The road surfaces are going to change and we need to check them out. They are called Road Evils.................... ( Read more )
