The first week of May, 2023 ABATE of Florida, together with other motorcycle groups and advocates, was successful in passing legislation we believe will radically improve motorcycle safety in Florida. Senate Bill 838, which was sponsored by Senator Jay Collins and Representative Taylor Yarkosky, allocates millions of dollars for a new Florida motorcycle safety education and awareness program. Under the new law the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will select and work with three motorcycle safety groups to develop and administer this new program. The new Safety Program will also foster collaboration and cooperation within the motorcycle community. We believe this new Program will result in safer roads, fewer crashes, and fewer motorcycle deaths and injuries.
SB 838 passed the Florida House of Representatives last week on a 114 to 0 vote and is now on its way to the Governor. Governor DeSantis, who is a huge friend of the motorcycle community, supported the Bill and helped advocate for its passage by the legislature. However, we still need him to sign the Bill so it will become law.
We are asking all motorcyclists to please call Governor DeSantis’ office today. When you call, thank him for supporting the motorcycle community and for supporting SB 838. Ask him to please sign SB 838 when it arrives on his desk. Governor DeSantis’ office number is (850)717-9337.
If you ride and care about safety, please call the Governor today. It will only take a few minutes. Sincere thanks for helping the community on this important issue.
