Why should you join ABATE?

A Brotherhood Aimed Towards Education

What does A.B.A.T.E. do:

· We have trained instructors who teach a Riders Safety Course, focusing on safety and proper operation of a motorcycle

· We present motorcycle safety and awareness programs in schools

· We work with our Government of Federal, State and local levels, fighting for your rights and against unfair practices of the motorcycle, off road and ATV communities

· We promote unity through the involvement in our community

Because of A.B.A.T.E.

· Federal funding has been cut for Motorcycle Only Checkpoints

· Motorcycle modification-you now may have vertical license plates, taller ape hangers and brake lights that flash prior to showing as a steady red light

· Penalties for traffic violations have been reduced

· The ‘Red Light Law’-when at a red light controlled by a sensor and the sensor does not recognize your motorcycle you may legally proceed with caution through the light after waiting a minimum of 120 seconds

· Wearing a helmet is not required in Illinois
