Like to ride? MVD draws attention to motorcycle safety

“Riding for the Long Haul” event this weekend

PHOENIX – Motorcycles and safety are two words that should be emphasized in tandem as much as possible, especially when you consider that there are approximately 320,000 motorcycles registered in Arizona.

With that in mind, the Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division is lending its assistance to the “Riding for the Long Haul” motorcycle safety event being held Sunday, March 3 in Phoenix.

MVD employees will be on hand to discuss safety issues specific to motorcycle operation and provide information about taking courses at motorcycle safety schools throughout the state.

“Riding for the Long Haul” is a free event sponsored by the Arizona Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Foundation. In addition to the safety presentations, the event features demonstrations, bike show, food and entertainment.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Shrine Auditorium & Convention Center at 522 N. 40th Street in Phoenix.
