The Suffolk County, NY biker community is teaming up with local officials to educate the motorists on how to share the roads more safely.

“Our attempt is to try and get the message out that we’ll be driving alongside them. Too many people don’t look for motorcylces, especially when turning,” stated Jim Barr, president of the Long Island Chapter of
ABATE (American Bikers Aimed Toward Education) during a rally at the H. Lee Dennison Building in Hauppauge attended by more than 400 motorcycle enthusiasts, including former Yankee outfielder Johnny Damon.

The group was also praised by Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone, who thanked them for raising awareness of an increasing problem.

Additional organizations participating in the event included the Suffolk County Police Department, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Steve’s Motorcycle School and the state’s DMV, which reported that at least 16 people die as a result of motorcycle accidents in Suffolk alone each year.
