Unendorsed Rider Motorcycle Safety Initiative
Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning


The Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning (OHSP) determined that the “unendorsed” operator was far over-represented in motorcycle crashes.

The OHSP, with the support of several state motorcyclist safety partners, coordinated an initiative to contact every known unendorsed operator of a registered motorcycle in Michigan with a strategically planned message.

The effort is having a positive effect on reducing the number of unendorsed motorcyclists involved in a crash or fatality in Michigan. Learn More
