  • 5. Top of Class MSC graduate. http://www.flickr.com/photos/lel4nd/4890574120/sizes/o/in/photostream/ Personally witnessed a near tragic accident involving a close friend. Over a decade behind the wheel and handle bars. http://www.flickr.com/photos/72334647@N03/8391953800/sizes/o/in/photostream/
  • 6. http://www.flickr.com/photos/helga/4309039626/sizes/l/in/photostream/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/thenovys/3791884189/sizes/l/in/photostream/ Take a moment to realize how much time and stress could be avoided if we added an HOV like lane for motorcycles.
  • 7. Unlikely-hood of an accident by lane sharing motorcycles http://www.flickr.com/photos/96dpi/2779478194/sizes/o/in/photostream/ Stress on local infrastructure Motorcycle performance far exceeds that of a car http://www.flickr.com/photos/72334647@N03/6874800263/sizes/o/in/photostream/
  • 8. Think This looks bad? Imagine taking away 2 wheels, the magnesium alloy roll cage, 8 of 8 airbags, and traction control. http://www.flickr.com/photos/26349479@N07/3655592577/sizes/o/in/photostream/
  • 9. Lane sharing has the potential to save lives. 18,000 injuries could be avoided if lane sharing was implemented in all off the united states. http://www.flickr.com/photos/rob_sg/5258273583/sizes/l/in/photostream/
  • 10. 84% of riders who have engaged in lane sharing have never had contact with another vehicle. http://www.flickr.com/photos/neilarmstrong2/5480544493/sizes/o/in/photostream/
  • 11. http://www.flickr.com/photos/99247795@N00/248599651/">Richard Masoner / Cyclelicious</a> via <a href="http://compfight.com">Compfight</a> <a href="http:// creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0/">cc</a> http://www.flickr.com/photos/titanjad/9472063910/sizes/l/in/photostream With more congested roadways, you can see just how much room motorcycles have to utilize as a lane between cars.
  • 12. $750 per person in wasted fuel and productivity due to traffic congestion in recent years. In 1982 it was $290 per person in contrast (adjusted for inflation) http://www.flickr.com/photos/smkybear/2085384996/sizes/l/in/photostream/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/johanl/5056822667/sizes/l/in/photostream/
  • 13. 15-70 hours a year stuck in traffic. http://www.flickr.com/photos/lord-jim/8402983969/sizes/l/in/photostream/ Just as people choose their vehicle based on MPG, soon they will chose motorcycles based on mobility. http://www.flickr.com/photos/stevebott/4590010861/sizes/o/in/photostream/
  • 14. Motorcycles are no wider than a persons shoulders. There is more than enough room if you consider the size relation. http://www.flickr.com/photos/burningimage/2363258975/sizes/o/in/photostream/ In fact, Motorcycles take less space in between cars than cars take in their own lanes!
  • 15. Motorcycles can easily maneuver through the most congested traffic jams without putting others at risk. http://www.flickr.com/photos/spacemanpirate/882069065/sizes/o/in/photostream/
  • 16. 2:1 reduction in motorcycle rear-end collisions in states where lane sharing is lawful

  • 18. Sitting at congested red lights feels unbearable at times. Imagine the sweltering heat sufficating you with hot engines running all around you... http://www.flickr.com/photos/gsfc/6755276747/sizes/o/in/photostream/
  • 19. Lane Sharing, lets commit to being altruistic and reap the rewards of smoother traffic. http://www.flickr.com/photos/72334647@N03/8391953800/sizes/o/in/photostream/
  • 20. Wouldn’t it seem a bit selfish to deny them the use of a perfectly suitable lane of travel? Let’s all do our part to open up our roadways http://www.flickr.com/photos/32920110@N07/3484895197/sizes/l/in/photostream/
