Motorcycle safety is everyone’s responsibility

August 6, 2008 by · Comments Off on Motorcycle safety is everyone’s responsibility 

By the Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue’s Community Relations Team

More motorists are trading in or parking their larger motor vehicles for motorcycles as a way of beating the rising cost of gasoline. Nationwide, there is an increase in motorcycle traffic on highways and countryside roads. Yet, with this increase in ridership there is an increase in motorcycle accidents. Although, the U.S., in recent years, has been successful in reducing automobile deaths, the National Highway and Transportation Administration (NHTSA — http://www.nhtsa.gov) indicates the rate of motorcycle fatalities has more than doubled in the past 10 years — 2,116 in 1997 to more than 4,800 in 2006 — offsetting the gain in lives saved from higher seat belt use and improved passenger vehicle safety. Currently, motorcycle fatalities are the nation’s greatest highway traffic safety challenge.

The guys over at EmpireCovers.com sent me one of their VIP Motorcycle Covers and asked me to check it out. Now just so you guys know I do not use a cover, I have a garage and besides that my bike hardly sets still long enough to be covered. I know there are a lot of folks out there that either do not have a garage or store their bike over the winter, the VIP cover would be a great product for you folks.

Even though I do not personally use a cover on my bike I would recommend the Empire Covers VIP Motorcycle Cover to anyone looking for a cover to protect or store their bike.

Although he commutes just a few miles to work, Andrew Vance has considered making the switch from his car to a motorcycle to save money, particularly on gas.

“It’s cheaper overall to own and maintain a motorcycle and parking is cheaper,” said Vance, 25, adding that if he were to use a motorcycle, he wouldn’t have to pay to park on the streets of Arlington, Va., where he works.

Vance, a resident of Arlington, recently completed a course in the Rider School at Howard Community College, which teaches novices how to properly and safely handle motorcycles.

08NR12 – MRF News Release – HIPAA Update

July 31, 2008 by · Comments Off on 08NR12 – MRF News Release – HIPAA Update 

The Motorcycle Riders Foundation reports that language similar to the HIPAA loophole-fix language contained in HR 1076 may be offered by the bill’s sponsor to a piece of legislation being worked on by the US House Energy and Commerce committee, as previously reported by the MRF.

While we are not privy to private negotiations between committee leadership and the bill’s sponsor, we are cautiously optimistic that language that would be of benefit to motorcyclists would be included.

The MRF has been aggressively lobbying committee members and staff to encourage this.
