AMSAF continues to help the Motorcycle Community
It’s been an exciting year for AMSAF as we continue to help the motorcycle community in helping to reduce motorcycle crashes and fatalities.
So far we’ve been able to help over 2600 individuals get into Motorcycle training with our AMSAF Scholarships.
As we look back at the end of the year and the holidays, we will see a lot of get-togethers, celebrations, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year. In addition, its a great time for riding with this beautiful Arizona weather and what a great time of the year.
On a more serious note, in 2016 we had 144 Motorcycle fatalities and of that, 55 died due to being impaired. This is a huge concern to AMSAF and if anything we’d like you to think about what to do if you are impaired and can’t drive or ride.
There are so many help opportunities out there with Uber, Taxi, designated driver or maybe just staying at the place you’re at for the night. Please think twice before having to face the risk of being impaired.
In the next couple of months, you will more Billboards up around the valley by AMSAF and these focusing on impaired riding. On this page, you will see what they will look like. We also pass out “Know your Limit” cards”.. We want to thank the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety for allowing us to partner on these postcards and get them out.
Be sure to check out our weekly Facebook Safety tips at, https://www.facebook.com/AMSAF.ORG/ and don’t forget about our Monthly Scholarship opportunity for a Basic Rider Course (BRC) or a Basic Rider Course 2 (BRC2). We give out our Scholarships on the first Monday of the Month and the time can change. If you’re interested in getting a Scholarship, we recommend getting on and signing up as they go fast. https://www.amsaf.org/scholarships/
AMSAF hopes you had a great 2017 with your family and friends and at the same time were safe. It’s a great time to enjoy your time and not be another statistic.
Thank you for your support of AMSAF.
