ABATE of Maryland, Inc. Motorcycle Awareness Campaign
Currently, ABATE of MD is out of stock on the Marty Signs. Please check back in the near future... In recent years there has been a troubling increase in the number of injuries and fatalities to motorcyclists due to accidents that occur when another vehicle violates the right-of-way of a motorcycle rider. This is a particularly poignant issue for ABATE of Maryland, Inc. members because of the recent accident that took the life of our State Director, Marty Schultz.
In an attempt to reduce these types of accidents state-wide, we have stepped up our involvement by sponsoring our own awareness campaigns. Although we have worked with the Maryland state government for many years to promote the notion of awareness campaigns, we realize the need to supplement the government-sponsored, seasonal public service announcements with grass-roots, year-round campaigns of our own.
Our initial awareness campaign is to get 'Look for Motorcycles' yard signs placed in yards state-wide. The goal for these signs is to introduce the notion in the minds of automobile drivers that motorcycle riders are on the road.
The purpose for these signs is two-fold; first to promote motorcycle awareness and second to raise money for future grass-roots awareness campaigns sponsored by the motorcycling community.
For those who are interested in obtaining and displaying a yard sign, we are asking a minimum $10 donation. The money will be earmarked specifically to re-coup what was spent on the initial sign printing cost, re-order signs as needed, and ultimately to fund future campaigns.
To obtain a sign, call the ABATE of Maryland, Inc. state office at (800) 843-0252 (in Maryland) or (410) 263-9185.
