Ironic, Ain't It?

"There’s a new special license plate promoting motorcycle safety available starting today! ABATE of Minnesota designed and sponsored the new motorcycle awareness license plate. The plates cost $10 and there is an annual $10 contribution that will go toward motorcycle safety education and training programs.

Plates are available for purchase at deputy registrar offices: http://ow.ly/D0KB30huk1R"

That bastion of anti-helmet, anti-government, anti-anything that might make motorcycling safer and more responsible, ABATE, convinced the dimwitted Minnesota legislature to create a "Start Seeing Motorcycles" (and Unicorns) special license plate and the character on the plate could not look less like an ABATE member.

  1. That is ironic. But I like the look of the plates!

  2. If it said "Start Learning How to Ride" I would consider them, but the "Start Seeing" just offends me on too many levels. And I taught MSF class in the past.

    1. I am totally with you on this (and many other) viewpoint.

  3. It is the motorcyclist's responsibility! I am a firm proponent of: "Motorcyclists Start Being Seen".

    1. Fred, that is a better slogan on multiple levels.
