Extreme Long Distance Endurance Motorcycle Rider IronBoltBruce ATTENTION ALL RIDERS...NATIONWIDE CALL-TO-ACTION FROM ABATE OF IOWA...PLEASE ACT NOW...PLEASE FORWARD

ABATE OF IOWA is calling on all American motoryclists concerned about their Right-to-Ride to contact their U.S. Senators and Representatives and request that Congress initiate proceedings to reduce or eliminate the budgets of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ("NHTSA") and the National Transportation Safety Board ("NTSB") on the grounds that they are (a) illegally conspiring to circumvent the state lobbying restrictions placed on NHTSA by TEA-21 (the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century), and (b) irresponsibly wasting millions of taxpayers dollars focusing on an issue that constitutes only a minor portion of overall traffic injuries and fatalities. Here is their agenda...

...and here is how it fails us:

PLEASE use the links below to find and contact your U.S. Senators and Representatives TODAY. And when you do, please remember that the issue here is NOT the utility of helmets, and goes FAR beyond the futility of helmet laws. So don't focus on freedom of choice, letting riders decide, or how much you enjoy the wind in your hair. Instead, please focus on the fact that NHTSA and the NTSB are operating illegally and irresponsibly, wasting millions of taxpayer dollars on misguided agendas, and that it is time for Congress to tighten the purse strings and rein in these rogue federal agencies!

Subject: ...Nationwide Call to Action...

It is time to ensure our elected representatives in Washington DC are aware of the following.

Here's some background on the issue thus far--

On September 11, 2007 there was a NTSB (National Traffic Safety Board) board meeting held to cover their "new found" statistics and their plan of action. They did accept questions from the audience but did not take anything into consideration. The statistics they are using have been "cherry picked" from the FARS (Fatality Analysis Reporting System) report. The NTSB has investigated 124,000 airplane tragedies, 10,000 other surface transportation tragedies, but only 6 motorcycle tragedies in the last 40 years.

It is now illegal for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to lobby our government(s) using taxpayer dollars per the language in TEA-21. FHWA gathers data and NHTSA compiles the data for the FARS report. Publicly there are no ties between the NTSB and NHTSA. The NTSB is directly government funded. IF these two agencies are independent of each other, why do they have parallel goals and feed each other information?

The NTSB has published many articles, as has the media, stating they plan to send lobbyists out to the States to persuade those legislatures to pass Universal Helmet Laws. A Universal Helmet Law means there are no age restrictions or any other limitations - if you ride on a motorcycle you will wear a helmet.

HERE'S WHAT WE'D LIKE YOU ALL TO DO:

Make contact with your U.S. Representatives and Senators via any or all of the means available. In your own words, ensure you request action on the following points (be polite!):

The NTSB is not telling the whole truth by using cherry picked statistics to further their goals.

The NTSB and the NHTSA are obviously working together since the NHTSA cannot legally lobby.

Both of these government agencies are taxpayer funded and are wasting time and money on an issue that is a small percentage of the total traffic fatality problem.

[ASK YOUR U.S. SENATORS AND U.S. REPRESENTATIVES TO DO THIS:] Begin proceedings to restrict, reduce, or eliminate, their budgets and financial support since they have demonstrated they cannot accept the responsibility of the intent of said agencies.

Sign, date, and send to your U.S. Senators and U.S. Representatives.

FIND YOUR U.S. SENATORS HERE:

It is time for this underhanded push to be stopped! Email, fax, or phone are the best methods to communicate since letters mailed to DC have a tendency to be delayed while being checked for dangerous substances. If you do not receive a reply to your communication after two weeks, send another.

Thank you.
