September is Motorcycle Awareness Month

Motorcycle Awareness Month is back for 2019!

September is Motorcycle Awareness Month (MAM) and signals the start of the motorcycling season. Over half of all motorcyclists start to get their bikes out of the garage and onto the roads after a winter break.

September is an important time to deliver key messages to both riders and drivers, about what they can do to keep motorcyclists safe.

Messages for riders are around refreshing riding skills with Ride Forever coaching, ensuring your gear offers you the right protection, and checking your bike before getting back on the road.

The key message for drivers is that more bikes are back on the road, so ‘Look Twice’ at intersections and before changing lanes. We want to make all road users aware that they play a part in keeping each other safe on the road.

  The key message is: ‘Look twice for motorcycles’.

The central hub for Motorcycle Awareness Month is the website. Live from 31st August.

On the MAM website, you can find:

  • Tips for riders and drivers.
  • Bio’s on MAM 2019 ambassadors.
  • A link to articles.
  • Link to the Ride Forever Facebook, where all social media posts will be promoted.
  • A link to the MAM Facebook filter.
  • Any regional events being held around the country.

As part of MAM the Dunedin Police with support from DCC are putting on a motorcycle event on Sunday, 15th September at the central VTNZ building. There will be a free BBQ & free bike safety checks plus a bunch of other things happening.
