 (12-6-14)    Happy Holidays to One And All!

    Well with the November State Board of Directors Meeting in our rearview mirror, the annual election process of filling ˝ of the ABATE of Ohio, Inc., State Board of Directors Offices 2015/2016 are complete, with the exception of the Election to the Office of Chairman of the Board. As many of you Know, that Office is filled by a Vote of the General Membership by Mail In Ballot only, and the Official Ballot for this race is printed on the inside back cover page of the December Issue of the Outspokin’ Magazine. .........( Read more....)

  (12-6-14)     We are going into a new legislative cycle. We have a fresh two years to get things started and passed in Columbus. This is a time for planning and deciding which bills we want to pursue. Come to Seminar we be deciding our legislative agenda there.

    Thanks again for a great year and have a safe and happy holidays. By the way, I hear an ABATE of Ohio, Inc. membership makes a great Christmas present........... ( Read more....)

From the Legislative Page
  (12-6-14)   When we originally discussed the idea for the bill we knew there would be some initial push back from law enforcement. This is why we left content of the training and rules up to the Ohio Department of Public Safety, which is over the State Highway Patrol. We knew and accepted the fact that there would be rules about who was permitted to take the class and when and where road guarding could be done. We also knew and accepted that we would probably have to give law enforcement in the area we would be road guarding in, a heads up prior to the ride. We knew all of these things would be taken care of by the Ohio Department of Public Safety when they came up with the curriculum to become a certified road guard. The FOP wants to have these things included in the bill which is acceptable to us. .. ...........( Read more )

  (12-6-14)    Here are a few facts that I found that maybe we could work on by taking a Riders Program. Untrained and unendorsed riders are over represented in the accident statistics. Cause of accidents show a lack of skill and poor behavior; 32.09% Intersection, 24.45% Speed related, 19.44% Alcohol related and 33.62% Roadway departure. Lack of training is a problem and if we had more riders trained and endorsed, these percentages would surely go down.

    Last year in the Motorcycle Ohio Program we could have trained about 300 more riders. This tells me that we need to keep the classes full. If you get on the list show up. I will be talking more this winter on how we can help to make our sport safer............ ( 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.
