Everyone plays an important role in motorcycle safety. Even if you do not ride a motorcycle, chances are you know someone that does. That’s why at the MCC we believe motorcycle safety is everyone’s responsibility. Behind the helmet, motorcyclists are mothers, fathers, children, and friends. Please help others think about motorcycles this riding season. Increased visibility and awareness will improve the chance of motorcyclists being seen on the roads and trails this year.
Warmer spring weather signals the start of the motorcycle season where motorcyclists are eager to get back on the roads and trails. At the MCC our long-term goal is to make Canada the safest place to ride a motorcycle.
Motorcycle safety is everyone’s responsibility. Help spread the word and encourage others to be aware of motorcycles on the road. Encourage your friends and family to be safe when they are riding, driving, and heading out on the trails. Here are five ways to help support motorcycle safety:
We’re encouraging riders, passengers, motorists, and loved ones to take the Motorcycle Safety Pledge. This is a promise to yourself and others to put safety first. Join the many Canadians that support motorcycle safety by taking the #MotorcycleSafetyPledge at motorcycling.ca. Then share your pledge with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
We have put together a toolkit of resources – posters, logos, social media graphics, and tips on how to host a motorcycle safety event. Visit the resource section of our website for all the details.
Attend a motorcycle ride in your community, add a safety component to an existing event, or create your own event.
