SB76, the 2015 Motorcycle Mobility Safety Act is facing opposition from the Anti-Motorcycle Lobby, they are trying to convince the Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee that Vehicular Insurance rates will go up as a result if this bill becomes law even though that has been shown to be untrue in other states that already have such malfunctioning red light relief bills, such as South Carolina. The Anti-Motorcycle lobby is trying to deny Motorcyclists the ability to pass through malfunctioning traffic signals which riders due to protect their own lives, not cheat the law or gain some advantage over other road users (as some Georgia Representatives have claimed in the past) . Attached is the list of members of the committee, Georgia riders who are constituents of these members are asked to call and email,please be polite and respectful, and ask them to vote yes on SB76. We have listed the counties each Representative represents, if you are unsure of if one of the members is your representative, please go to http://openstates.org/ga/legislators/?chamber=lower there you can enter your zip code and determine who your representative is. LET’S KEEP THOSE PHONES RINGING WITH POSITIVE RESPECTFUL SUPPORT. UNTIL THEN, LET THEM HEAR YOUR VOICES…Riders who want to familiarize themselves with our position can check out page 38 of the ABATE newsletter downloadable at our website abatega.org or available at 100 different locations across the state. Are you part of a riding group? share this info with them as well! Every rider in Georgia should be telling their State House of Rep member…YES ON SB76!
‘ATTENTION ABATE OF GEORGIA MEMBERS, HOME WORK TIME..Attached is the list of Georgia House Rules Members, Please review, ABATE Districts are listed next to each Rep, if your ABATE District has a Rules Rep, Please call both their District and Capitol Office lines and politely explain to them that you are their constituent and then ask them to vote YES on SB76..Some ABATE districts have multiple Legislative Districts within them, if that is the case for your ABATE district, please go to http://openstates.org/ga/legislators/?chamber=lower then type in your ZIP code and it will tell you if the Rules member is your House Representative….This EFFORT IS CRITICAL to our efforts to see SB76 and HB166 become law for all Georgia Motorcyclists. If you have any problems with this effort CONTACT YOUR DISTRICT LEGISLATIVE COORDINATOR OR DISTRICT COORDINATOR, DO NOT DELAY THIS IS CRITICAL.
