LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION memorializing Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to
proclaim May 2014 as Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Month in the State
of New York

WHEREAS, It is the custom of this Legislative Body to recognize official
months that are set aside to increase awareness of issues that affect
the lives of citizens of New York State; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, it is the sense of this Legislative Body to memori-
alize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim May 2014 as Motorcycle Safety
and Awareness Month in the State of New York; and
WHEREAS, Each year, motorcycle riders are killed by drivers who do not
see them; greater public awareness must be achieved in an effort to
reduce the numbers of fatalities; and
WHEREAS, In addition, the number of motorcyclists is increasing year-
ly; further education is necessary in an effort to teach riders to
become more aware of safety issues and possible road hazards; and
WHEREAS, It is imperative that there be greater public awareness of
this serious safety issue, and more must be done to increase activity at
the local, State and national levels to support the patients as well as
their families; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim May 2014 as Motorcycle
Safety and Awareness Month in the State of New York; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the State of New
York.
