PennDOT Invites Riders to Join National Ride to Work



PennDOT is invited motorcyclists to participate in National Ride to Work Day today.
 
PennDOT Secretary Barry Schoch says the event serves as a reminder that motorcycles and other vehicles should share the road safely throughout the riding season.
 
To help ensure safe riding year round, riders should wear reflective clothing to increase visibility, ride sober and allow ample time and space to react to changing roadway conditions or hazards.

Riders are encouraged to attend free training offered through the Pennsylvania Motorcycle Safety Program, which offers four courses – the 15-hour Basic Rider Course (BRC); the six-hour Basic Rider Course 2 (BRC2); the eight-hour Advanced Rider Course (ARC); and the 12-hour 3-Wheeled Motorcycle Basic Rider Course.

For more information or to schedule a course, visit www.pamsp.com or call 1-800-845-9533, Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and noon.

According to PennDOT, there were nearly 4,000 crashes involving motorcycles statewide last year, resulting in 210 fatalities.

Members of the motorcycling community are encouraged to share their riding stories and take the pledge to "Be One Less" statistic on PennDOT's interactive motorcycle safety website, www.livefreeridealive.com.
