The Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada (MCC) wants all motorcyclists to be visible on the roads, in the hopes of reducing crashes, especially at intersections where almost 50 per cent of motorcycle collisions occur.

“Motorcycle safety is everyone's responsibility,” said Dave Millier, MCC chair. “We’re encouraging everyone to take the Motorcycle Safety Pledge because behind the helmet, motorcyclists are mothers, fathers, children and friends.”

Take the Motorcycle Safety Pledge

Everyone plays an important role in motorcycle safety. Even if you do not ride a motorcycle, chances are you know someone that does.

“At the MCC our long-term goal is to make Canada the safest place to ride a motorcycle,” said Millier. “We hope to achieve this ambitious goal by encouraging everyone—riders, passengers, drivers and loved ones to take the Motorcycle Safety Pledge.”

There are simple things that can be done to put safety first. Motorcyclists can pledge to ride within their limits, ride sober, obey traffic laws, and make arriving alive their greatest priority. Motorists can pledge to always look twice, and to check blind spots before switching lanes. Motorcycles are smaller and harder to see than other vehicles, so double-checking before changing lanes or making a left-hand turn can help ensure the safety of everyone on the road.

Join the many Canadians that support motorcycle safety by taking the Motorcycle Safety Pledge. Visit motorcycling.ca for all the details, and tell us why you’re taking the #MotorcycleSafetyPledge on motorcycling.ca, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. This designated month is a public awareness campaign that originally began as regional events held across Canada for many years. In 2013, the MCC officially launched a national initiative to promote motorcycle safety among all road and trail users across Canada.
