Washington State sponsored Motorcyclist Survey

Just got a letter and survey from the Washington DOL - Motorcycle Safety Program.
I was "randomly selected" to participate. Participants have an Active motorcycle endorsement and a motorcycle currently registered in WA.
There is a hard copy of the survey that can be mailed in, but they also have an online version.
Here's the Link.

Nice to see that the MSP is doing SOMETHING to help save lives and make it safer for us.

I guess I will not be getting one as my motorcycle is registered in my wife's name (I was out of town when it got to the dealership). She did get a card in the mail the other day saying the WSP will impound her bike if she is caught riding without an endorsement.

Well, I added my inputs as a year round commuter.. Thanks for the link.

I said distracted/unaware drivers are the biggest safety concern for motorcyclists because they're the furthest away from the rider's control.

I said the biggest safety concern was the rider. Can't be waiting for cagers to take us out.

Also done. Have not heard about the 'Non endorsement impound' campaign or the post cards before this.

I have not heard of ANY of those campaigns ever! And I am on top of the news everyday.

I did the survey, agree with the drivers being the most dangerous to us on 2 wheels.

Oh and those campaigns, most head of them word of mouth or on a forum, never seen on TV or email or on the news that I recall.

The DoL/WMSP have been sending postcards out to folks who have a motorcycle registered in their name who do not have an endorsement. This has been an on and off effort for the past few years.
My wife got one several years ago, telling her her bike could be subjected to being towed and impounded and she could be subjected to fines if she was caught riding un-endorsed. Sort of the same situation as mjh937.
