May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month in New York, and the Buffalo motorcycle accident lawyers at William Mattar Law Offices would like to tell you about a few events taking place as part of the campaign.
Events focusing on motorcycle safety started Saturday, May 2, in Erie County with the American Bikers Aimed Toward Education (ABATE) of NY Erie-Buffalo Chapter’s 25th annual safety and awareness ride. Niagara Frontier Publications reports that several speakers addressed the crowd prior to the ride to discuss the importance of focusing on safety throughout motorcycle season. Then, the group took off and made their way around the area to help raise awareness about the increase in motorcycle traffic that can be expected.
The New York State Motorcycle Safety Program is also providing a new course to teach riders about the proper operation of a motorcycle. The Basic Rider Course 2 will focus on advanced topics and will help riders get licensed quicker.
