NHTSA Highlights Cycle Safety

by

Did you know the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has a web page devoted to motorcycle safety?

The NHTSA says its Motorcycle Safety page focuses on comprehensive programs designed to help prevent crashes, the prevention of injury when a crash occurs, and the reduction in the seriousness of injury after a crash.

The federal office says its initiatives are designed to foster promoting motorcycle rider education and licensing; reducing the number of impaired motorcyclists; increasing motorist awareness of motorcycles; and increasing helmet use.

Documents on display include:
– “Legislative Facts 2008: Motorcycle Helmet Use Laws”;
– “Summary of Novelty Helmet Performance Testing”;
– “Uniform Guidelines for State Highway Safety Programs – Motorcycles”;
– “2006 Motorcycle Safety Program Plan”;
– “DOT Secretary Peters Urges Manufacturers to Provide Free or Inexpensive Helmets or Safety Training With Each New Motorcycle Sold”;
– “Model Language for Share the Road with Motorcycles”;
– “Evaluation of the Repeal of the All-Rider Motorcycle Helmet Laws In Florida”;
– “Traffic Safety Facts 2006: Motorcycle”.

The page also features links to Motorcycle Safety Planners, Publications, Resource Guides, Public Service Announcements, Brochures and Studies & Research.
