The Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) released its latest public education and awareness program, Intersection, for motorists to help reduce the number of crashes between motorcyclists and other vehicles, according to a MSF press release.
The program is geared to help all motorists become more informed about how to share the roads safely with motorcyclists. Dean Thompson, director of communications at the MSF, says they are aiming to create a safer rider environment.
“In the majority of crashes involving a motorcycle and another vehicle, the other vehicle’s driver violated the motorcyclist’s right-of-way, too often with serious consequences,” he said.
The program’s curriculum was based on input from a number of organizations including the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the American Motorcyclist Association, the Motorcycle Riders Foundation and the National Safety Council.
