"The AMA is proud to take the lead in addressing the issue of impaired riding," said Robert Rasor, President of the American Motorcyclist Association. "We believe that ridestraight.com can be a valuable tool in raising awareness about the risks of combining alcohol and motorcycling."

In light of statistics showing that 41 percent of the fatally injured motorcycle riders in 2001 had a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 g/dl or greater - the legal limit of impairment in many states - last September the AMA announced that it had joined forces with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to produce Ride Straight.
