Take our survey

The Texas A&M Transportation Institute is conducting a survey on reasons why riders do and do not wear protective gear.

If you have a moment, please take the survey which will ask you about your riding history and gear use. The purpose of the study is to develop recommendations for a public outreach program for reducing motorcycle crash-related injuries.
