State motorcyclists' rights organizations
State motorcyclists' rights organizations (SMROs) exist in about 32 US states, 25 of which call themselves "ABATE of (state name)," the rest going by various other names. SMROs advocate for a point of view in motorcycling that is, in general, hostile to mandatory helmet laws, required motorcycle safety inspections, mandatory rider training and licensing, and other similar regulation. Instead SRMOs favor optional or voluntary motorcycle rider safety education, training, and licensing, and greater public awareness motorcyclist safety issues. They also favor stronger penalties for car driver infractions such as right of way violations, or when drivers are at fault in accidents that harm motorcycle riders. SRMO activities include lobbying legislatures, letter writing campaigns, and paying for public service announcements and political advertisements. To carry out lobbying at the national level, a coalition of SRMO's created the Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) to lobby in Washington DC. The SRMOs and MRF are often allied with the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) on legislative issues.
