ABATE of Illinois' motorcycle awareness program was
developed with the new and inexperienced driver in mind, and teaches
them how to look for, and interact in traffic with motorcycles.
It takes one full class period to present and consists of a
video, oral presentation, question and answer session, and a short
quiz. This all makes for a full and fast paced class period that hold's
the students' attention like little else.
The presentation was developed from
materials supplied by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, Illinois Dept.
of Transportation, the Motorcycle Safety
and Awareness Program of Greater Illinois, and the Safety and Education
dept. of ABATE of Illinois. In addition to the awareness presentation,
interested students are provided with information on "Rider Education" courses.
Motorcycle Awareness Program Video
Available for Use by Other SMROs
We are eager to have the video shown to as many prospective drivers as possible. Toward that end, this video is being made available to other state motorcyclists’ rights organizations to use in their Motorcycle Awareness Programs in high school classroom settings.
