May is Motorcycle Awareness Month, and the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) has announced the release of three new public-service announcements (PSAs).
The 15-second PSAs remind motorists to watch for motorcycles, caution motorcyclists against combining alcohol and riding, and convey the message that excessive noise poses risks to motorcyclists' right to ride. the PSAs are intended for free distribution to radio stations nationwide and feature the voice of AMA Life Member Colter Rule.
"These are important messages all year long, but they're especially crucial at this time of year," said AMA Public Information Director Tom Lindsay. "We hope that broadcasters will join us in spreading the word, to help make 2006 a safe riding season."
The new PSAs are available for download in the "Rights Resources" section of the AMA's website - www.amadirectlink.com/legisltn/resources.asp. The AMA offers other valuable information for new and experienced riders in the "Rider Resources" and "New Rider" sections of AMADirectlink.com, and at RideStraight.com.
