Take the
Motorcycle Challenge


    In less than a week the Motorcyclist Advisory Council will convene to discuss issues important to motorcyclists; road curve and design, self-driving cars, road barriers - all of these items will be discussed. Do you know how many motorcycle association representatives are on the Council to discuss these critical issues? ONE. That's right. ONE.OUT.OF.TEN.

    Help to deliver a strong message to the Federal Highway Administration by signing a petition to request for additional seats for motorcycle associations to serve on the Council and speak on behalf of the motorcycle community.

    We're up to almost 2,700 names so far - can you help me double that?

    Forward this message, Post the link on Facebook. Distribute to your family, friends and fellow riders. Together, we can send a strong message to the Federal Highway Administration. THIS IS OUR COUNCIL AND WE WILL NOT BE SILENCED.

    Together, let's spread the word: #LetRidersSpeak

From the Legislative Page
Kolman Fuzy
  (12-4-17)     Another topic I have mentioned in previous articles is the "ear plug" or hearing protection bill (HB280). Proponent testimony for this legislation will happen a week from this writing, but a month before you read this. This bill will permit motorcyclists to wear ear plugs to protect their hearing, something which is not allowed in Ohio at this time. I would like to stress that this is strictly VOLUNTARY. It give motorcyclists the option to wear ear plugs if they so desire. Abate will draw up our position on this, and Safety and Education Director Mike Stock will testify on Nov. 8th. Stay tuned................ ( Read more )
From the Safety & Ed Page
Mike Stock
  (12-4-17)     Every month I look at which counties have the highest fatalities; Cuyahoga County had 12 fatalities with 3 of them alcohol fatalities, Lorain County had 8 fatalities with 5 of them alcohol fatalities and Summit County had 7 fatalities with 1 of them an alcohol fatality. All three of these Cleveland area counties touch each other. Franklin County (Columbus) had 8 fatalities with 1 of them alcohol, Lucas County (Toledo) had 7 fatalities with 1 of them alcohol, and Hamilton County (Dayton) had 7 fatalities with 1 of them alcohol. The challenge is to figure out what can we do to bring these numbers down next year. You will hear more on this soon; help me if you have any ideas.................... ( 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.
