Rep. VanderWall honors Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month
RELEASE|May 5, 2023

Rep. VanderWall addressed his colleagues on the House floor yesterday to urge support for his resolution declaring May 2023 as Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month.

Michigan is home to over 500,000 people with motorcycle endorsed licenses and over 187,000 registered motorcycles.

“For those of us who ride, there’s no better way to travel around our great state than on a motorcycle,” VanderWall said. “But riding can be dangerous. Accidents involving motorcycles are significantly more likely to be fatal than those that only involve cars. Drivers and riders alike must take caution to keep our roads safe. I encourage my fellow riders to be extra safe this season and encourage car and truck drivers to keep a close eye out for motorcycle riders.”

House Resolution 98 passed on the House floor on Tuesday, May 2. The resolution was supported by American Bikers Aiming Towards Education (ABATE), a group dedicated to motorcycle safety and awareness throughout the nation.

VanderWall also thanked local law enforcement and state troopers for their work in keeping the roadways safe and responding in times of motorcyclist distress.

The representative pledged to continue making road safety and maintenance a primary issue for his office.
