Governor Eric Holcomb has proclaimed May to be Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Month in Indiana. Spring weather means that motorcyclists will be on the streets in greater numbers. ABATE of Indiana joins Governor Holcomb and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in urging everyone to share the road.
Rally on the Circle, Thursday, May 4th
To draw further attention to motorcycle awareness, ABATE of Indiana will be hosting an event in conjunction with the Indiana War Memorial, the Marion County Traffic Safety Partnership, the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, Tucker Rocky - LDI, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, Indiana State Police, and the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles. The kickoff event for Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Month will take place on Monument Circle from 11:00 to 1:00 on Thursday, May 4, 2017. All motorcyclists are welcome to join in and park their bike on “The Circle” with police motors from various agencies and some special attractions.
We encourage all motorcyclists to ride responsibly and respectfully. Ride free of impairment and make certain they are properly licensed to operate a motorcycle. We recommend that all riders take a formal rider education course, as studies have indicated that 90% of crash involved riders are self-taught.
