New program lowers crash deaths

A new program developed by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation has already shown to lower motorcycle-related deaths. THE REF, Transportable High-End Rider Education Facility, is a $300,000 federally funded program aimed to promote motorcycle safety. THE REF is a high-tech, mobile program that includes interactive tests, motorcycle simulators, and demo motorcycles.

Since THE REF’s introduction in August 2010, last year’s 62 motorcycle-related fatalities have dropped to 46. The Department of Transportation will take THE REF to five dozen cities in Wisconsin to promote awareness of motorcycle safety. Records show that an estimated 80% of riders have not undergone any motorcycle training; this program homes to lower this number.
