  (9-11-14)   If you take into account the increase in registrations (which most articles I’ve read forget to mention) the ratio of fatalities to registered motorcycles shows a steady decline in numbers. This happen at the same time Michigan became a choice state in 2012. This seems particularly relevant in a time where not only the federal government is talking about helmet laws, but the UN is talking of world wide helmet usage. I would like to think that the safety and awareness programs, like our “Look Twice Save a Life” program (signs and T-shirts available at the ABATE of Ohio product trailer) have a lot to do with the ratio dropping. If you see your legislators after the November elections remind them of this. “Educate don’t Legislate” I believe is the old battle cry. They have a fair and equitable Highway Bill to pass, seeing that the current members of Congress kicked that can down the street so the Congress sworn in next year can handle it..........

  (9-11-14)   Elections are right around the corner. The candidates are busy in their hometown stirring up support. Take the time to track them down and introduce yourself. Get a card from them, or an email address, or a phone number so that you have the info at a later date. ...........( Read more )

(8-9-14)  What a great summerwe are having! Yes,we have had some rain but not much on weekends and not to the point of stopping a great ride. I see more riders on the road this year than years past. With this being said, we need to keep up the fight to ride Smart. The stats for this year are rising:
•2013 – 1725 crashes and 54 fatalities.
•2014 - 1088 crashes and 47 fatalities.
Keep putting signs out, check on your friends and talk up riding smart.......... ( Read more )

Tired of sitting on your bike at Red Lights
that won't turn GREEN ????
    To enlist the help of Ohio’s motorcyclists, ODOT set up a special phone number & E-mail for motorcyclists for reporting problem intersections. When reports come in, ODOT will notifiy signal owners ( often a city or county ) about the situation and offer recommendations for improvement.
