Oklahoma Riders in Favor of New Motorcycle Fee

By Car Accident Help on September 9, 2010

A new tax will be added to the registration of all motorcycles in Oklahoma, according to NewsOK.com. The $3 tax is designed to fund safety programs for both experienced and inexperienced riders and reduce the risk of motorcycle accidents in Oklahoma. The article states that many in the motorcycle community are in favor of the new fee since it provides an opportunity for riders to learn about safety on the road.

One man, an avid motorcycle rider and host of a radio show about motorcycles says he has no qualms about the new fee, which the state will begin charging on November 1. The man even suggests that perhaps a program to teach motorists how to better watch out for bikers would be helpful. The Oklahoma Tax Commission reported that 123,906 motorcycles were registered in the state in 2009, which is a 7.4% increase from 2008.

Ultimately, the Oklahoma Advisory Committee for Motorcycle Safety and Education will determine how the funds will be spent, but most riders support the new tax.

Motorcycle accidents in Oklahoma are an unfortunate and common occurrence with 105 riders killed and 1,269 more injured in 2009 according to the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, you may find it highly beneficial to retain the services of an experienced Oklahoma motorcycle crash attorney.
