Arizona Motorcycle Safety & Awareness Foundation (AMSAF), a major voice in the statewide effort to reduce distracted driving and to provide discounted scholarships for motorcycle training, is partnering with numerous Arizona businesses to increase efforts to further protect riders on the state’s busy roadways.
According to AMSAF executive director Mick Degn, the organization is leading efforts to reduce crashes and fatalities in Arizona.
“Three cities in our state rank amongst the worst five in the country for poor driving and riding habits,” says Degn. “We have got to make drivers and riders more aware of their surroundings at all times while operating on our thoroughfares. Enough is enough. It’s time to save more lives through myriad efforts and programs.”
The 501c(3) non-profit organization works closely with individuals, sponsors and business partners from virtually every industry including healthcare, the State of Arizona, insurance, legal, small business and others to help decrease the number of distracted and DUI-impaired drivers and to provide scholarships, statewide, to train motorcyclists how to ride more defensively.
AMSAF’s devoted partners help to recognize leaders, plan interactive public events, provide intense promotion through news, social media, newsletters, ads, themed billboards, marketing collateral with purpose and amazing campaigns and programs. Some of its notable efforts include Share the Road – a statewide public awareness effort – discounted motorcycle training, financial assistance for top quality helmets and now, accident scene management to physically help those in need on our roadways.
“AMSAF supports local police departments and gets involved in key community events like Arizona Public Service Days at the State Fair and providing a strong presence at the DUI kickoff every year at the state capitol,” adds Degn. “We are a resilient community of partners who enable one another to achieve success.”
RideNow, a major AMSAF supporter, is revered by industry leaders as the largest and most professionally operated Powersports dealer group in the United States. The company prides itself on bringing quality vehicles, service and experience to the communities it serves.
“As an industry leader in Powersports, safety is a critical part of our business in helping the community stay safe,” says Mike Pfab, RideNow marketing manager. “This is just one reason why we partner with AMSAF to promote motorcycle training, helmet use and accident scene management in helping the community.”
“Everyone needs to participate in the mission to share the roads with others if for no other reason then to share and care with your family, friends and employees who drive or ride everyday. Citizens can support AMSAF as a business, organization or as a caring citizens,” says Degn.
