On June 23rd, ABATE of Wisconsin issued a “National Call to Action” for motorcyclists to unite for the impending battle against freedom-busting federal regulations. The Center for Disease Control who has picked up the traditional Department of Transportation duties as well as the insurance and medical communities have banded together to implement new restrictive regulations in order to “save motorcyclists from themselves” as well as electronic surveillance measures in order to monitor motorists on the roadways. Their measures even go so far as to electronically control or shut down your vehicle if they feel you’re being irresponsible or if you’re traveling to an area where they don’t think you should be. And when that doesn’t work, they will go after the very thing we love – Our motorcycles!
ABATE of Wisconsin’s “Call to Action” continues to pick up steam as the calls pour in from across the country from motorcycle rights organizations eager to preserve their freedoms of the road.
For years, motorcycle rights organizations have fended off attacks from the government agencies in charge of our roadways. Agencies such as the Department of Transportation, the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration and other bureaucracies have tried to implement helmet laws, motorcycle only road-side checkpoints and other such measures to restrict motorcyclists’
freedoms. They have been largely ineffective up to now because of the strong lobbying power of motorcycle rights organizations such as ABATE of Wisconsin.
ABATE of Wisconsin, Inc. which was founded in 1974 is a motorcycle rights and safety organization dedicated to "Freedom of the Road." ABATE of Wisconsin's goal is to give the motorcyclists of Wisconsin a strong, united voice with regard to their future, their way of life, their safety, and their legal rights as motorcyclists and citizens.
