Motorcycle Ohio Reminds Motorcyclists to Ride Safely as they Take to the Streets

Posted on May 23, 2022

(COLUMBUS, Ohio) – With May being National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, Motorcycle Ohio reminds Ohioans that more motorcycles are on the roadways because of warmer weather.

In addition to raising awareness about motorcycle safety, Motorcycle Ohio will also present the Saved by the Helmet award to three recipients.

The award is given throughout the year to those who survive serious crashes while wearing a helmet.

Included in the presentation will be a certificate of recognition and a new replacement helmet.

Motorcycle Ohio hopes that acknowledging riders who wear protective gear will help to promote and increase awareness of the life-saving value of motorcycle helmets.

The “Saved by the Helmet” Award presentation will take place Tuesday morning starting at 10 at the Ohio Department of Public Safety in Columbus.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol urges new motorcycle operators to take a training class before taking to the open road on a motorcycle.

The patrol features the story of Ken Wells to emphasize its point.

Wells was involved in a serious injury motorcycle crash in July of 2020.

In the video, Wells stated that he didn’t think he needed training before operating his motorcycle for the first time.

After his accident, he said if he could go back and do it all over again.
