Members of ABATE of Wisconsin to raise awareness throughout the State of Wisconsin..

Drivers are encouraged to double check their blind spots and give a second or third look before making a turn or pulling into the intersection. ABATE of Wisconsin wants everyone to not only be aware of motorcyles, but other roadway users as well who may have been missed that first look.
ABATE of Wisconsin Inc. also encourages motorcycle riders to do their part as well. Riders are encouraged to re-familiarize themselves with their controls and handling of their motorcycle since they haven't used it for a few months. Anyone who is interested in learning more about riding; whether you have been riding for years or are getting ready to start riding for the first time in your life, consider taking a rider education course with ABATE of Wisconsin. For more informatiion on Safe Riders Course, visit www.abatewis.org.
All users of the road should operate their vehicle within their own abilities. Drivers should not drive distracted or under the influence because the result could be the end of someone's life. Working together we can lower motorcycle fatalities on Wisconsin roads. In 2013, 2014 and 2015 motorcycle fatalities were below the 10 year average. So far in 2016, fatalities are down 60% compared to last year! This is a message that is shared with the Department of Transportation in Wisconsin who has turned on their digital signs warning drivers to "Look Twice For Motorcycles"
Motorcycle Awareness Month is one way to keep those fatalities down; Education and Awareness are the key to saving lives. Please do your part; look twice, save a live.
ABATE (A Brotherhood Against Totalitarian Enactments) is a bi-partisan grass roots organization with a goal 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.
