Rider Research Project at HCC Looking For New Motorcycle Riders
June 24, 2013 - The Rider School at Howard Community College is looking for new motorcycle riders to participate in a federally-funded research project. Riders who participate will be given a $100 Target™ gift card for completing two half-hour rides on pre-determined routes while being observed and videotaped by a car, following closely behind. Participation in the study is completely voluntary and all information collected by the researchers will be kept private.
Participants must have a valid motorcycle license from Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania or Virginia. Those with a Maryland learner’s permit can convert it to a license through the study without further testing at the MVA.
The Rider School is conducting this study through a grant from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Research for the project began in 2011 and has recently been extended.
For more information about the study or to volunteer, call 443-267-8839 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
