Made possible through a Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) traffic safety grant, researchers at the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) started the Unlicensed to Ride safety project in 2018 aimed at increasing the number of riders who complete motorcycle safety training and get their motorcycle license (Class M) in Texas. The project began after it was identified that almost half (47%) of the motorcycle operators killed on Texas roads in 2017 did not have a valid Class M. In fact, the percentage of unlicensed riders killed in Texas had been steadily climbing since 2012.
The Unlicensed to Ride safety project is modeled after the successful Shadow Rider program in Michigan. The Unlicensed to Ride’s ultimate mission is to help all road users get home at the end of the day and save lives.
