New Okla. Motorcycle Safety Website

OKLAHOMA CITY - The Oklahoma Highway Safety Office (OHSO) recently
launched a new Oklahoma Motorcycle Safety & Education website. The site
provides one convenient location for motorcyclists to find legislation, training opportunities, and other motorcycle safety information.

"Of the almost 130,000 motorcyclists in Oklahoma in 2011, over 1,400 were killed or injured. The need of a single source on motorcycle safety and education was evident," said OHSO Director, Garry Thomas. "I am pleased that this new site can serve as that complete resource. It provides information on motorcycle safety and statistics while giving the public an overview of the state's motorcycle laws."

The new website offers educational videos featured on the homepage, as well as links to other websites that promote motorcycle safety. All content on the Oklahoma Motorcycle Safety & Education website is maintained by the Advisory Committee for Motorcycle Safety and Education, which was formed to address motorcycle safety issues in Oklahoma. The committee serves at the discretion of the
Commissioner of Public Safety.

The new website was built using OK.gov's GoGov! Web Management Suite, allowing for easy and quick web development and maintenance, while utilizing a standard state agency web template. The Oklahoma Motorcycle Safety & Education website and services result from a partnership between the Office of Management and Enterprise Services and OK.gov. More information about the new site can be found here.
