The MAC serves as the only official forum for the motorcycling community to have an open dialogue with the U.S. Department of Transportation to discuss concerns about infrastructure design, issues with intelligent transportation systems, and other areas of safety affecting motorcyclists on the road.
The last iteration of the MAC was co-chaired by AMA Director of Government Relations Michael Sayre, and was disbanded after their formal recommendations where submitted to the Federal Highway Administration in early 2020. You can read those recommendations here.
H.R. 2141 and S. 1853 takes the lessons learned from the last iteration of the MAC and will create a more effective and diverse council that will issue three rounds of recommendations over six years.
Take action now: Let’s ensure the U.S. DOT continues to hear from the motorcycling community!
