Motorcycle Safety Month

Man on motorcycle

The Ventura Police Department and law enforcement throughout the country will be conducting special motorcycle safety enforcement operations throughout the month of May for Motorcycle Safety Month. In addition, the California Motorcyclist Safety Program is offering special, low cost rider training classes during the month of May.

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 to register at a location near you.

California motorcycle fatalities saw a phenomenal drop of 37 percent from 2008 to 2010, but then rose 31 percent by 2015. Efforts like these are aimed at curbing any more rises in motorcycle deaths and sending the numbers back downward.

New Riders are urged to get basic training through the California Motorcyclist Safety Program. Information and training locations are available at California Motorcyclist 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.”
