Spreading Awareness About Motorcycle Safety at the Pearland International Festival

The Texas A&M Transportation Institute’s motorcycle safety will be out at the Pearland International Festival to promote motorist awareness and rider safety.  We’ll also be giving away freebies! Stop by the exhibit booth, introduce yourself, and pick up your free items!

The 2017 Pearland International Festival takes place this weekend, Friday 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Purchase tickets at the door. Find out more at http://www.ifestoftexas.org.

In the United States, a large majority of motorcycling is recreational. Elsewhere in the world, many people depend on two- or three wheels to go about their daily commute. Did you know the top 5 countries with the highest percent of motorcycle/moped/scooter use:

  1. Vietnam – 79%
  2. Indonesia – 67%
  3. Taiwan – 48%
  4. India – 40%
  5. Pakistan – 35%

These (and all other) two- and three-wheeled users can all benefit when motorists look twice.
