Motorcycle and Scooter Riders

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration offers training classes for motorcycle riders that focus on cyclist safety. However, both licensing and training programs should focus on pedestrian safety as well, particularly in regard to yielding behavior and proper parking. After licensing, this group may be difficult to reach; however, working with shop owners to distribute literature at the register in cycle or scooter shops might prove to be an effective educational tool.
