Display provides motorcycle safety awareness
News from Beauregard Daily News:

A display featuring two wrecked motorcycles from crashes that ended in fatalities has been moved from La. 1147 to the Rosepine Civic Building on U.S. 171 by the Goldwing Road Rider Association (GWRRA) Chapter LA-M.

A sign on the display implores drivers to “Watch For Motorcycles.”

Rosepine Police Chief James Parrott gave a few remarks to the group after the display was moved, and he mentioned that during the time the two bikes were on the side of the road on La. 1147, there had been no more bike fatalities or accidents and speeding had slowed down, a release from GWRRA states.

Parrott said that placing the wrecked bikes on U.S. 171 will hopefully have the same effect for bikers on that stretch of road.

“It is our desire to help  four-wheel vehicles be aware of motorcycle accidents and watch a little more carefully for these two- and three-wheelers that legally share the road with you,” the release states.

More of these types of signs can be found around Vernon Parish, and DeRidder Mayor Ron Roberts has said he will place bumper stickers with the same slogan on all city vehicles, the release states.

Last February, SGI proposed to increase insurance rates for motorcyclists by more than 70 per cent to try and close a $ 9 million gap between payouts for injuries and what motorcyclists pay.

The rate review panel ultimately capped the hikes at 15 per cent, but there was still large public outcry. As a result, the provincial government asked the Crown corporation to form a review committee to come up with alternative solutions to raising rates.

The committee’s recommendations have the potential to reduce deaths and injury by about 20 per cent.

Some of the new initiatives seem like common sense:

  • Require new riders to demonstrate they can safely handle a motorcycle by passing a skills and ability test
  • Bump up the fee for Motorcycle Graduated Driver Licensing to $ 500 for new riders who haven’t taken training before getting their learner’s license
  • Require riders to hold a class 5 license
  • Require riders to wear s…………… continues on Globalnews.ca
