DOL Planning Motorcycle Safety Campaign

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON STATE--In April, the Department of Licensing will be kicking off a batch of television advertisements..focused on motorcycle safety.

DOL staff hope motorcycle owners will be standing in line at offices like the one in Kennewick, doing their part to contribute to safety.

The campaign is called 'Endorse Your Sport'. Organizers say it's simply a continuation of last year's initiative on motorcycle safety.

According to statistics, people are getting the message. In 2007, there were 15 fewer fatal motorcycle crashes than in 2006. During that year, more than 17,000 people completed rider education classes across the state.
