May is Motorcycle Safety Month

Motorcycle Riders are Urged to Get Trained and Ride Safe

Improving Motorcycle Safety Aim of this Azusa Police Department Operation

The Azusa Police Department is joining law enforcement statewide and across the United States in the National Motorcycle safety awareness month special enforcement operations. In addition, the California Motorcyclist Safety Program is offering special, low cost rider training classes during the month of May.

The Azusa Police Department will be conducting a specialized Motorcycle Safety Enforcement Operation on May 21, 2017 in an effort to lower deaths and injuries. Extra officers will be patrolling areas frequented by motorcyclists and where motorcycle crashes occur. Officers will be looking for violations made by drivers and riders alike that can lead to motorcycle crashes. They will be cracking down on both those operating regular vehicles and motorcycles who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, speeding, making illegal turns, or any other dangerous violation.

The California Motorcyclist Safety Program (CMSP) is offering a "Total Control Refresher Training" course during the month of May. This four-hour riding class is for experienced riders with a current motorcycle license. Riders will use their own street-legal motorcycle during the class taught by CMSP-certified Instructors at a cost of only $95. Log onto the CMSP website (http://cmsp.msi5.com) to register at a location near you.

California motorcycle fatalities saw a phenomenal drop of 37% from 2008 to 2010, but then rose 31% by 2015. Efforts like these are aimed at curbing any more rises in motorcycle deaths and sending the numbers back downward. Since October 2016 in the City of Azusa, motorcycle involved collisions have resulted in 6 injury crashes.

New Riders are urged to get basic training through the California Motorcyclist Safety Program. Information and training locations are available at http://www.californiamotorcyclist.com/ or 1-877 RIDE 411 (1-877-743-3411).

Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The message to all drivers and motorcyclists is: share in the responsibility and do your part by safely "sharing the road."
