Here’s an update from Nick Benson and Chuck Pederson concerning the addresses for the Senate Transportation Committee.  I think there was only one wrong and I fixed it before I sent out the email to everyone yesterday.  But I’m forwarding their email just in case.  There is a very good sample letter at the end that could be cut/pasted and addressed to the individual committee members.  Of course, you can modify.

Subject: AB51 Endorsement Request ADDRESS CORRECTION!!

 

		

It was brought to my attention that last night's requests for emails and letters to our reps supporting AB 51 listed the emails of our reps inaccurately.  Below are the corrected email addresses.  Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

 

Nick Benson Sr

Asst Legislative Director


 

 

ABATE of California and All,

Below the line is a form letter that you can distribute to all motorcyclists that you know. Each can use the letter as-is or copy any part and  add their name and address at the end. The goal is for all to send their support of AB51 to the California Senate Transportation Committee.

AB51  is due to be heard on June 14. Immediate action is required.

Thank you Sporty for doing my leg work and providing the email addresses for the Senate Transportation Committee.  Everyone should click on each link and copy and paste the following letter and send them. Better yet, just tell them why you want them to support AB51 in your own words. 

Chuck Pedersen

State Legislative Director

RE: AB 51 (Quirk) – SUPPORT

 

Dear Assembly Member Bill Quirk:

 

On behalf of ABATE of California, I am writing to inform you of our support for your bill, AB 51 (Lane Splitting: Educational Guidelines), which will allow for the development of educational guidelines on safe lane splitting practices.  

 

California law is silent on lane splitting. Since current law does not explicitly prohibit it, lane splitting is an accepted practice. Currently, there are no guidelines or safety standards to guide drivers on how to safely maneuver motorcycles when lane splitting. 

 

The California Highway Patrol (CHP), with the help of a diverse set of stakeholders (including ABATE of California), drafted a set of guidelines and posted them on CHP’s website. However, a discrepancy as to whether or not these guidelines were underground regulations forced CHP to pull the guidelines from its websites.  As a result, CHP had to curtail all education and outreach efforts on lane splitting. 

 

In recognizing the many benefits lane splitting can provide to California motorcyclists’ safety and our overly congested roads, AB 51will codify lane splitting and provide clarity in statute by stating that the California Highway Patrol; with input from the Department of Motor Vehicles, the Department of Transportation, the Office of Traffic Safety and our motorcycle safety organization, has authority to develop educational guidelines on lane splitting. 

 

AB 51 will keep our roads safer and our drivers better educated. ABATE of California supports AB 51 and we look forward to working with you to ensure its passage.

 

ABATE of California is a long standing motorcyclists’ rights organization dedicated to preserving freedom of choice and freedom of the road, with emphasis on education and safety. We offer our future involvement as the lane splitting guidelines are resurrected and established.

 

Sincerely,
