The Senate recently confirmed two National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) members this week: Chris Hart, and Dr. Bella Dihn-Zarr. Hart will serve as chairman of the board, while Dihn-Zarr will serve as a board member. Hart has currently been the acting chair for almost a year. Hart is a natural choice as he has served on and off the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) since 1990. Dihn-Zarr, a public health and transportation scientist, has served at NHTSA, AAA, and her last post was heading up the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA Foundation). The Motorcycle Riders Foundation looks forward to working with the new NTSB members on motorcycle safety where we can agree.
Bikers Inside The Beltway
If you have not already done so, save the date for the 7th Annual Michael “Boz” Kerr Bikers Inside The Beltway. This year’s event will be held in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, May 14th, 2015. Come to D.C. and participate in the only national motorcycle lobby day. You likely do this at your own state capitol so why not come to D.C.? The laws made in D.C. can effect you just as much as the ones that come from your state capitol. The MRF will provide free secure motorcycle parking close to the Capitol building, lobby materials and anything you need to effectively lobby your federal elected officials. Do contact the MRF office if you plan on attending or if you have questions about the event.
