Since year 2000, the MMSF / Bikers Helping Bikers leaders have had a seat at the MassDOT / RMV table, working with State Officials on programs aimed at reducing accidents, injuries and fatalities. On July 15th, the Committee met and provided the following two presentations (Adobe PDF), based on the accident reconstruction reports and other data available for each registered motorcycle in Massachusetts.
Bikers Helping Bikers asks for your review and any ideas you might have to help reduce accidents and fatalities here in Massachusetts. Write us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts, ideas, questions.
