We just wanted to spread the word about the BMW MOA’s national safety campaign called, “America’s Highways–Built for All of Us.” The statistics are alarming: In 2017 almost 5000 motorcycle riders were killed in highway accidents and over 60 percent of motorcycle fatalities involved automobiles. The campaign’s objective is to remind ALL OF US that we must share the road. It aims to reduce aggressive driving as well as educate all motorists on highway dangers. The program launched at the Des Moines, IA BMW MOA National Rally this past summer where they released this cool design:
You can find out more about the campaign as well as request materials to use for your local chapters/clubs/groups here. You can also donate to the cause either as a tax deductible gift OR you can get some awesome gifts depending on your donation size. Every donor also gets a chance to win a 1999 fully restored BMW R1100R no matter what size gift they give!
So, please take a look and be safe out there…sharing the road goes both ways!
