Some of ABATE’s accomplishments over the years:

· Successfully lobbied for legislation that created the Georgia Motorcycle Safety Program (GMSP), our state’s rider education program that is available to all.

· Lobbied to have legislation passed to modify the existing mandatory helmet law to allow adults age 21 and older freedom of choice as to the wearing of a helmet.

· Successfully lobbied for legislation leading to the repeal of the Georgia law prohibiting use of speakers or headphones while riding a motorcycle.

· Fought and stopped legislation introduced in the 1992 Session of the Georgia General Assembly that would have made it illegal for kids age 10 and under to ride as passengers on motorcycles.

· Established May as “Motorcycle Awareness and You” month through a proclamation signed by the Governor and through resolutions passed by the Senate and House each year. This is an annual effort that raises public awareness of motorcycles.
