'Ride to Work' for motorcycle safety

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Georgia Motorcycle Safety Program (GMSP) encourages Georgia motorcycle riders to join others from around the world and ride to work Monday, June 15.

'Ride to Work' is a campaign created to help raise awareness about motorcycle safety.

“Riding a motorcycle to work is a great commute option for those whose are properly licensed and capable of safely handling a motorcycle,” said Tom Komjathy, Manager of the GMSP. “I am encouraged that more people are looking to riding as a primary source of transportation and not just a hobby or sport.”

Komjathy also believes this event will help highlight the importance for rider education and how to travel safely on public roads and highways.

The Department of Driver Services (DDS) sees this as an opportunity to get more people to participate in the motorcycle safety training classes. “Whether you are a beginner or an experienced rider, there is a GMSP training class to ensure you are sharing the road safely.” Said DDS Commissioner Rob Mikell.

Those who do pass the motorcycle safety training could earn the required endorsement needed to legally ride a motorcycle in the state of Georgia. For more information about GMSP and to register for a course online, please visit the GMSP website.
