May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month.

Motorcycle safety is
everyone’s responsibility.


Take the Motorcycle Safety Pledge. Help make Canada one of the safest places in the world to ride a motorcycle. The pledge is a commitment: a promise to yourself and to others.

Motorcycle Safety Pledge


Take the Motorcycle Safety Pledge

Read the pledge aloud. Say it with a friend or family member.
Most importantly, find a way to make it meaningful for you!

As a Motorcyclist

I pledge to make safety a priority, to ride only when alert and fully prepared for the responsibility of motorcycling. I pledge to ride within my limits, ride sober, obey traffic laws and make arriving alive my greatest priority.

As a Passenger

I pledge to ride only with riders who place my safety first, who provide me with the proper riding gear, and who always ride sober.

As a Motorist

I pledge to treat motorcyclists with respect by always looking twice, using turn signals, checking my blind spots before switching lanes and eliminating distractions while driving. I pledge to act as if a loved one is riding on each and every motorcycle I see. I promise to drive like their life depends on me, because ultimately, it may.

As a Friend and Family Member

I pledge to support my loved one’s enjoyment and pursuit of motorcycling. I pledge to encourage them to seek certified riding instruction, to wear the proper protective gear and to be a safe rider.
