On May 2, Rowan County will participate in a proclamation that May is Motorcycle Awareness Month with representatives from the Concerned Bikers Association.
For more than 50 years, the association has existed for one reason: to make our roads safer for everyone. The NC ABC has directly helped enact laws that do just that, from the “Red Light Act” to Bill 200 (2011) which states, “Every student in NC driver training shall have at least one hour of motorcycle awareness training to qualify for a rider training certificate.
Although the ABC has been providing the training for three decades, the passage of this law has made the program a requirement and consistency across the state.
The organization offers free “Look Twice NC” training to all students. In many places we provide live instructors and in others videos and interactive webinars.
Join us for the board meeting, feel free to take photos and you are welcome to join and watch our live classes.
But that’s not the only free program we provide. The Adult Driver Awareness Program is offered in-person and virtually every few weeks and Commercial Driver Training is tailored and provided for each business we serve. We also provide speakers for security conferences. We recently presented “Prevent the Collisions of Tomorrow” at the ADSTEA NC conference.
We are also looking forward to our next big event, Vision Zero in August.
