Wisconsin DOT to Host a Peer Exchange on Motorcycle Safety Issues and You're Invited!
By John Reblin

On August 22nd, the Wisconsin DOT will be hosting an open Peer Exchange on motorcycle related safety issues. The thought behind this event is to create a discussion of issues facing motorcyclists today. Some ideas or topics which may be included are: increasing interest in motorcycle training, license issues, road paint and traction, chip sealing, round-a-bouts among others.

To attend this event, you will need to request a free ticket. Here is the link for the 43rd Wisconsin Governors Conference on Highway Safety being held at the Radisson Paper Valley Hotel at 333 W College Ave, Appleton 54911 and the request information to attend this exchange . The peer exchange is scheduled to be from 3pm-5pm. The link is https://www.eventbrite.com/e/wisconsins-43rd-annual-governors-conference-on-highway-safety-pre-conference-tickets-33463989694

When you get to this link, click on the REGISTER button. There is no charge to attend and everyone interested in motorcycle safety issues is welcome.

When you register for your free ticket, the Wisconsin DOT is requesting three topics be suggested that you feel you would like to discuss regarding motorcycle safety in Wisconsin. That will allow for the topics with the most interest to be discussed along with the DOT being able to plan to have the right personnel available to address/discuss those concerns.

This your opportunity to ask the questions or give opinions that you feel will improve motorcycle safety in Wisconsin. I urge you to attend and to share this link with others that may be interested in attending this event.

After the peer exchange, we will be having our MoSAC, (Motorcycle Safety Advisory Council), meeting at approximately 6.00 pm at the same location and all participants of the Peer Exchange are invited to attend this also. The evening should end by 8:30.

I am excited about this Peer Exchange, I feel we can share much needed information and raise many valid concerns. The more people that attend will make this a better event for Wisconsin motorcyclists.

Editor's Note: in addition to being ABATE of Wisconsin's Deputy Director and chair of our Highway Safety Committee, John Reblin also currently serves as the Chair of MoSAC. Thank you John for working with the DOT to set up this Peer Exchange.
