MOTORCYCLE OHIO TO KICK OFF RIDE SMART CAMPAIGN 

COLUMBUS — Motorcycle Ohio (MO), part of the Ohio Department of Public Safety’s (ODPS) Office of Criminal Justice Services (OCJS), has partnered with Quaker Steak and Fat Cat’s Pizza to kick off its statewide Ride SMART motorcycle safety campaign during their scheduled “Bike Nights,” raising awareness about all aspects of motorcycle safety including: Ride Sober. Ride Motorcycle Endorsed. Ride Alert. Use the Right Gear. Ride Trained. Ride SMART.

“It is important that we continue to educate both riders and motorists alike about the importance of motorcycle safety,” said OCJS Executive Director Karhlton Moore. “We must also continue working with our traffic safety partners on education, enforcement and engineering efforts that ultimately contribute to a safer Ohio.”

MO is working with state and local safety partners to get the message out to riders and motorists that everyone plays a critical role in motorcycle safety and will be working to continue these messages across the state during the entire riding season. People can follow #ridesmartohio on social media to get up-to-date information on scheduled activities.
