Motorcyclist Advisory Council Sunsets
Panel Studied Roadway Safety
The federal Motorcyclist Advisory Council ended its official duties Oct. 24, after meeting regularly since 2017 and sending its recommendations to the U.S. Department of Transportation in February.
Legislation to reauthorize the MAC was contained in an amendment to the federal highway bill that passed the House of Representatives.
The MAC was established to provide advice and recommendations concerning infrastructure issues related to motorcyclist safety, including barrier design; road design, construction, and maintenance practices; and the architecture and implementation of intelligent transportation system technologies.
Mike Sayre, AMA government relations director, was the MAC chair.
