MSF Contract for Safety

MSF Contract for Safety Introduced for MotorcyclistsThe Motorcycle Safety Foundation has introduced a “Contract for Safety” tool to encourage safe and responsible riding for all motorcyclists.

MSF says the tool “fosters communication between prospective motorcyclists and their friends and family about a safe way forward into motorcycling.” Once only available on Apple’s App Store to purchasers of MSF’s Rider Choices iBook, the MSF Contract for Safety is now available for free download on msf-usa.org.

The MSF says: “Avoiding crashes on a motorcycle requires not only being aware of the risks in traffic, but also managing those risks. With the Contract, the motorcyclist can review each of the key elements known to contribute to safety, initial each one in the presence of a friend or family member, and by signing the document and having the witness countersign it, affirm his or her intent to make wise choices when riding, with the overarching goal of reducing crashes.

“The Contract’s safety elements include getting trained, wearing a full set of safety gear on each ride, riding unimpaired, and keeping one’s motorcycle in excellent condition.”

The MSF believes that motorcycling isn’t for everyone – some simiply lack the judgement or abilities required for safe riding. But for those who are willing to commit to safe riding should demonstrate this by utilizing the MSF Contract for Safety and sharing it with other riders.
