Peters Launches New Motorcycles Safety Campaign

In an effort to combat the trend of rising motorcycle injuries and fatalities, U.S. Secretary of Transportation Mary E. Peters today announced a comprehensive new federal initiative to improve motorcycle safety with more rider education and training, tougher standards for helmet certification labeling, law enforcement training, and road designs that consider motorcycle dynamics.

In addition, Peters is appearing in a new television public service announcement where she credits her riding gear for saving her life during a 2005 motorcycle crash. "Take it from a motorcycle enthusiast who also happens to be the U.S. Secretary of Transportation," Peters says in the PSA. "Check your bike before each ride, wear all your safety equipment, and ride with others so you're more visible. If I hadn’t taken those safety precautions, I wouldn't be standing here today." Peters added that the PSA is just one part or a broad public awareness campaign on safe riding techniques.
