Indiana Motorcycle Safety Course to Be Run by The Motorcycle Safety Foundation
August 21st, 2015|
Motorcycle safety is a priority in Indiana, and one way the state has worked to promote responsible riding is by sponsoring a motorcycle safety course. Our Terre Haute motorcycle accident attorneys at Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin point out that for many years, American Bikers Aimed Towards Education of Indiana (ABATE Indiana) put on the class, but now a new organization will be hosting the courses.
According to Inside Indiana Business, the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) has signed a four-year contract with Indiana to organize the state’s official motorcycle safety course. The MSF has been promoting motorcycle safety for more than four decades and has been responsible for educating 8 million motorcyclists. The programs provide riders with both classroom and hands-on instruction on how to safely operate a motorcycle.
The MSF has stated they see a need for an increased presence of motorcycle safety advocates in The Hoosier State, which has prompted the organization to provide an additional 500 opportunities for Indiana motorcyclists to get trained this year. Then, in 2016, the MSF hopes to add an additional 1,000 training opportunities. The goal is to have a training facility within 50 miles of any Indiana motorcyclist’s residence.
At Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin, we believe that all motorcyclists can benefit from taking a safety course. So whether you’re just getting into motorcycles or you’re a veteran of the road, our Indiana personal injury lawyers ask that you consider signing up to take a motorcycle safety course.
