The United States Army has joined a list of other military branches that are taking part in Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. The event, sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, has lasted throughout the month of May.
Army leaders have launched their own media campaign to spread the word of “Share the Road”, the theme of Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. Articles, posters and public service announcements will show Army riders tips for staying safe.
In addition to a media campaign, the U.S. Army Combat Readiness Center Driving Directorate (USACRC) will release weekly questionnaires to assist with motorcycle safety and training. The USACRC collects data on motorcycle accidents, forms new policies and helps prevent on and off-duty motorcycle accidents.
Army soldiers and veterans will also share stories about surviving motorcycle accidents. By sharing their stories, novice riders can learn how to avoid and what to expect from motorcycle accidents. In one example offered on the Army website, a man describes an accident he was involved in when a passenger car shifted lanes and failed to see his motorcycle in time.
What Other Motorcycle Safety Programs Are Offered in the U.S. Army?
The Army also offers riders the Motorcycle Mentorship Program, which can help new riders seek out more experienced ones. With an array of safety programs and options for Army riders, Metier Law Firm hopes our military riders stay safe.
