  3. 3. Given the size ratio between cars and motorcycles, lane sharing is a legitimate action with benefits for both cars and bikes.
  4. 4. 4,200,000,000.00 34316967@N04/3856630108/sizes/n/in/photostream/ Amount of hours Americans spend in traffic in 2007.
  5. 5. Top of Class MSC graduate. Personally witnessed a near tragic accident involving a close friend. Over a decade behind the wheel and handle bars.
  6. 6. Take a moment to realize how much time and stress could be avoided if we added an HOV like lane for motorcycles.
  7. 7. Unlikely-hood of an accident by lane sharing motorcycles Stress on local infrastructure Motorcycle performance far exceeds that of a car
  8. 8. Think This looks bad? Imagine taking away 2 wheels, the magnesium alloy roll cage, 8 of 8 airbags, and traction control.
  9. 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.

  11. 11.">Richard Masoner / Cyclelicious</a> via <a href="">Compfight</a> <a href="http://">cc</a> With more congested roadways, you can see just how much room motorcycles have to utilize as a lane between cars.
  12. 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)
  13. 13. 15-70 hours a year stuck in traffic. Just as people choose their vehicle based on MPG, soon they will chose motorcycles based on mobility.
  14. 14. Motorcycles are no wider than a persons shoulders. There is more than enough room if you consider the size relation. In fact, Motorcycles take less space in between cars than cars take in their own lanes!
  15. 15. Motorcycles can easily maneuver through the most congested traffic jams without putting others at risk.
  16. 16. 2:1 reduction in motorcycle rear-end collisions in states where lane sharing is lawful
  17. 17. What would you do?
  18. 18. Sitting at congested red lights feels unbearable at times. Imagine the sweltering heat sufficating you with hot engines running all around you...
  19. 19. Lane Sharing, lets commit to being altruistic and reap the rewards of smoother traffic.
  20. 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
