Anaheim, Calif. — The Anaheim Police Department received grant funding from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) to promote motorcycle safety awareness with free, hands-on rider trainings led by local law enforcement.
The $60,000 grant will pay for a series of free motorcycle safety classes that allow riders to practice braking, turning, steering, entering traffic and other skills that help avoid crashes and improve rider safety on the road.
“The Ride to Live program will help the Anaheim PD provide high-quality motorcycle safety education and training to riders,” Anaheim Chief of Police Rick Armendariz said. “Training and education is the key to preventing crashes and creating safer roads for drivers, passengers, bicyclists, and pedestrians.”
The motorcycle training program will run through September 2024.
Classes will be available starting in January 2024. To register for a free training class, visit https://www.coppersandcycles.com/sign-up
Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
