I know you’ve been inundated with legislative requests recently, but please don’t delete this but rather take ACTION.  We are a motorcycle rights organization after all!  Please read the Legislative Director’s message below.  You will probably just have to leave a message, so you can just read the very short message under SAMPLE LETTER.  Simple enough.  This should take under an hour to complete … time well spent!


After calling all the representatives on the Assembly Transportation Committee (see list at bottom), it would also be good to put a call into your representative.  If you don’t know your Assembly Representatives, here’s a link that will find you the information based on where you live:  http://findyourrep.legislature.ca.gov/ .  We are fortunate that we have the Speaker of the Assembly in San Diego … Speaker Toni G. Atkins, District 78.  Would be a good idea to call her, too, if she’s not your rep.


Here’s a California State Assembly District Map http://www.sdvote.com/voters/Eng/maps/Assembly_Handout_2010.pdf.  Now you have all the information you should need to make a dozen calls and help the cause.

Dear ABATE of California Members

AB 51 is coming to vote April 6 in the Assembly Transportation Committee.  

As the bill is written, there will be a 30 MPH lane sharing limit, with a 10 MPH speed differential.  Your ABATE PAC has voted to not support this bill in its current state.  There have been attempts to negotiate different speed limits.  Assembly Member Quirk has been waiting for the results of a traffic study to help determine and support modifications to the speed limits.  However, the report has been delayed.

With the above in mind, I am requesting that all members contact the assembly transportation committee and the assembly members in your district requesting that they do not support AB51. Due to the time frame available please use the phone contacts provided below. Sporty said it took 30 minutes.  Even on the weekend you can call these numbers and leave your message on their answering machines.

Below is a quick note that you can utilize.  The Assembly Transportation committee member contact information is also below.  Please do this by April 1.

I have contacted Jim Lombardo to also communicate the same position.

Thank you,

Chuck Pedersen

Legislative Director



Dear Assemblymember,

I request that you do not support AB51, the motorcycle lane splitting bill. The bill as currently written does not fully address rider safety within the stated speed limits.  Further studies should be conducted to determine the effect lane splitting speed limits.  

Thanks you for your attention to this matter
