On May 9th, ABATE of Maryland, Inc was presented with a proclamation from County Commissioners for Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Month.
When asked by County Commissioners if he had any safety messages to share with our residents, Kenneth Eaton, Executive Director of ABATE of Maryland stated, “I would like for all motorist (vehicles and motorcycles) to be more aware of their surroundings and to pay attention when driving.” He also asked residents “To be mindful when maintaining their yards and to refrain from blowing grass clippings into the roadway since this causes dangerous conditions.”
