The Arizona Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Foundation received a $20,000 grant from the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety to help promote a helmet assistance program that will help individuals garner a quality DOT full face or modular helmet.
“We want to thank AZGOHS Director Alberto Gutier for his continued support for motorcycle safety in Arizona,” said Mick Degn, foundation executive director.
This helmet program will help individuals garner a quality Department of Transportation helmet with some financial assistance from AMSAF and a discount from AMSAF-certified dealers.
Degn said he believes the program will give riders the chance to purchase a good full-face or modular DOT helmet at a reduced cost.
The applicant must fill out an application and donate $50 to AMSAF, which is tax-deductible. If funds are not available, people can’t get into the application process as it will be closed. If AMSAF has additional funds available, applicants will receive a receipt with a promo code and instructions that they can take to specified dealership locations. The letter will extend a credit for $125 off a specified helmet. In addition, the certified dealer will give an additional 25% off MSRP on full face or modular helmets.
Arizona is a state where riders have a choice whether to wear a helmet or not. Degn said the foundation wants to help motorcyclists afford a helmet, if they choose to wear one. This program is possible due to grants, sponsors, donations and partners who want to help reduce crashes and fatalities in Arizona. The helmet program is open to all Arizona residents 15 years, 6 months old or older. Funds for this program also come from donations, sponsorship and grants.
AMSAF’s mission is to promote motorcycle safety and awareness and help reduce crashes and fatalities in Arizona. In doing so, it offers Arizona motorcycle training financial assistance scholarship program. This program also allows individuals to get into motorcycle training at a reduced cost. In addition, AMSAF offers safety tips on its Facebook page and wants to help the motorcycle community in other ways financially.
