The El Paso Police Department now continues to offer a free motorcycle safety course for drivers who want to get the most out of operating motorcycles. This is an action to counter the number of accidents involving them. Here are some motorcycle statistics for all of Texas:

  • More then 95 percent of all motorcycle crashes result in injury to the rider --- 45 percent of these injuries are life-threatening.
  • 3/4 of all motorcycle crashes involve a collision with another vehicle.
  • There's almost no reaction time given to the rider in a motorcycle crash. The moments go by way too quick.
  • Half of motorcycle crashes involve alcohol.
  • 90 percent of motorcyclists injured have no formal rider training.

The classes will be held on the third Saturday of each month. Class is from 10 AM to 1 PM. They will be held at Edge Kawasaki located at 10310 Montana and is completely free and open to the public.
