Why Do Legislators Oppose Motorcycle Safety?


A concerned citizen of Suffolk County wrote to his local representative about the possibility of adding safety signs near low visibility areas to promote pedestrian and bicycle safety. The citizen felt that the signs could “save lives and keep thousands of people from being injured in accidents such as the one my mother was involved in.” However, the legislator simply replied that “no one who lives in our hamlet or, for that matter, in Suffolk County should ever ride a…motorcycle,” because “Suffolk County is a suburban automobile community.”

The legislator’s response represents the common attitude that if a motorcyclist is injured, it is their fault because they were riding a motorcycle in the first place.
