SHARE THE ROAD

Share the Road is a motorcycle awareness program that A.B.A.T.E. of Iowa offers to reduce accidents by EDUCATING motor vehicle drivers. This training is intended to help drivers see, respect, and understand a motorcyclist's needs and rights on the highway.

A.B.A.T.E. of Iowa believes that education is the key to safety, and SHARE THE ROAD is a positive step in educating Iowa motor vehicle drivers about safe ways to interact with motorcycles on Iowa roadways. 

 

Share the Road programs can be presented to civic organizations and most businesses that regularly hold safety meetings. Anyone who operates a motor vehicle will benefit from this program.

To learn more about Share The Road or to schedule a training, contact the Share The Road State Coordinator, Megan Murphy, by emailing megan.joi611@gmail.com or calling (319) 231-0007, or fill out THIS CONTACT FORM.
