Congressman Randy Forbes Of Virginia Joins Congressional Motorcycle Safety Caucus

January 6, 2010 by · Comments Off on Congressman Randy Forbes Of Virginia Joins Congressional Motorcycle Safety Caucus 

Washington, D.C., Jan. 6, 2009 – U.S. Representative Randy Forbes (R-VA) officially joined the Congressional Motorcycle Safety Caucus in December 2009. He joins a bipartisan group of Members of Congress including Caucus Co-chairs Representatives Michael Burgess (R-TX) and Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), committed to improving and advancing the safety of motorcyclists.

Forbes commented, “While motorcycling is fun recreation and affordable transportation, it is important to remain focused on safety. The Motorcycle Safety Caucus encourages motorcyclists to get trained and licensed, obey traffic laws, avoid mixing riding with alcohol and wear proper, motorcycle-specific safety gear, but it doesn’t stop with riders. The Caucus serves to also remind other motorists that motorcyclists use the roads as well, and to remember to look for motorcycles particularly when turning or changing lanes.”

08NR22 – MRF News Release – Motorcyclists – get out and vote!

NO EXCUSES – VOTE NOVEMBER 4TH

In a matter of days, Americans will make the decision as to who will be the 44th President of the United States. Presidential elections bring out the largest number of voters, and the top of the ticket can have a definite impact on the down ballot races. Those races, specifically the 435 seats in the House of Representatives and the 35 seats in the United States Senate (there are 2 special Senatorial elections this year in addition to the 33 seats in this cycle) should be of serious interest to us.

In the next Congress we will see debate begin on the re-authorization of the Interstate Highway funding act, which has historically been the defining piece of legislation for us. It is imperative that we support our friends in Congress in those down ballot races and not let them get buried in what could be a landslide vote for President in some states. A defeat of Congressmen who are supportive of our issues could turn what we perceive to be potentially a positive piece of legislation on its ear. The days of “transfer penalties”, sometimes referred to as “helmet law blackmail”, could be on the horizon if we don’t get out and vote.
