    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.

  (5-2-17)     Many things have transpired since the April article, one of the most important being the amendment to HB154 (last legislative session), which contained a red light component.

  (5-13-17)     May is Motorcycle Awareness Month! We are back out on the roads and car drivers need to start watching out for us. This is the month that we have to remind motorcyclists need to watch out for those car drivers. Distracted driving is just getting worse by the day, so be aware we are smaller and some car drivers just won’t see us. So far this year we are not doing great but with the nicer weather, we could be in trouble. Last year, 2016, we had 268 crashes and 10 fatalities. This year, 2017, we have had 201 crashes and 8 fatalities. Remember it is our job to ride aware at all times and ride defensively................... ( Read more )
