Take the Motorcycle Safety Pledge and put your city
on the map
Spring signals the start of motorcycling season in Canada. That’s why May is officially recognized as Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. At MCC we recognize that everyone plays an important role in motorcycle safety. Even if you do not ride a motorcycle, chances are you know someone that does.
Each year the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) publishes their annual list of Canada’s Worst Roads. Drivers, motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians vote for the roads they think are in most need of improvement – be it potholes, congestion, safety concerns or poor road signs.

After a long, cold Canadian winter, motorcyclists are eager to get back on the roads. Warmer spring weather signals the start of the motorcycle season – that’s why May is officially recognized as Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. The Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada (MCC) wants all motorcyclists to be visible on the roads, in the hopes of reducing crashes, especially at intersections where almost 50 per cent of motorcycle collisions occur.
“Motorcycle safety is everyone’s responsibility,” explains Dave Millier, MCC Chair. “We’re encouraging everyone to take the Motorcycle Safety Pledge because behind the helmet, motorcyclists are mothers, fathers, children, and friends.”
Everyone plays an important role in motorcycle safety. Even if you do not ride a motorcycle, chances are you know someone that does. That’s why at the MCC we believe motorcycle safety is everyone’s responsibility.
Behind the helmet, motorcyclists are mothers, fathers, children, and friends. Please help others think about motorcycles this riding season. Increased visibility and awareness will improve the chance of motorcyclists being seen on the roads and trails this year. Read More
