MRF and the Road to Zero Coalition

  • The Road to Zero Coalition, managed by the National Safety Council, held their Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. on February 28th. Their goal is to achieve zero deaths related to motor vehicle crashes.

    The Motorcycle Riders Foundation attended this activity to keep track of how motorcyclists may be impacted. Frankly, motorcycles don’t fit very well into their plan. Fortunately, at this year’s meeting, motorcycles were not really referenced. A lot of talk about Safe Systems. There was also discussion of motor carriers (big trucks) and “traffic violence”. Pedestrian fatalities have increased dramatically. All part of the “vulnerable road users” talk that we’re trying to stay out of.

    The MRF will continue to have a presence at events such as this to ensure that the interests of motorcyclists are represented.
