According to the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission, every year, over 2,500 motorcycles are involved in crashes on NJ roads. Many of these crashes are caused by the motorcyclist's inexperience, lack of training or lack of constant training. In fact, 90% of riders who get into crashes have no formal training. They either taught themselves or learned from a friend or relative. And the vast majority of these riders are unlicensed to ride a motorcycle.
Research indicates that formally trained riders are less involved in crashes than riders who had no formal motorcycle training. In fact, 90% of motorcycle crashes involve untrained riders.
The more new riders and current riders we train properly and keep trained, the more we can help to reduce motorcycle crashes in NJ. Since our motorcycle training school is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, we can accept donations that will help us train more people and keep those already trained coming back for additional training. All donations are tax-deductible and go toward the purchase of additional training motorcycles, equipment and programs to expand our training center so we can train more people and keep them trained. Training and constant training are the only way to reduce motorcycle crashes. Your donation can help us achieve this goal. Together, we can make a difference.
Donate either $10, $20, $25, $50, $100, $200, $500 or more by;
1) Sending a check or money order to our office at 2 Shady Street, Paterson, NJ 07524 made payable to "The Riding Academy of NJ, Inc". (Write the word "donation" on the memo line).
2) Click here to donate using your credit card.
Unless your donation is restricted in writing, The Riding Academy of NJ will use its discretion in the prudent use of the donation for the benefit of training more riders. The more students we train properly and keep trained, the better we can help to reduce motorcycle crashes in NJ.
Thank you for your support.
