MAY is “Motorcycles And You” awareness period throughout the United States, as resolved May 5, 2009 in Congress (see below), while it started with the American Motorcyclists Association and most states' motorcyclists rights organizations in the early 1990's – especially in the Northern States coming out of winter . . .

In celebration of “Motorcycles And You” (MAY), Check Twice Signs is offering a special deal on these absolutely funky, kookie, cheap sunglasses, with the original (from 1982) “Check Twice – Save a Life, Motorcycles are Everywhere” message on the frames over the ears . . .

Tired of losing your expensive sunglasses, breaking them or can't find them ?  These are 'styling' cheap throw-aways if you lose them or need to give a set to a buddy who lost them, you won't feel you're out $49 or $149 . . .

And, when someone comments like, “What the heck are you wearing?” - you can slowly remove them, til your head, and in your best, sultry voice showing them each frame, reply, “please 'Check Twice – Save a Life, Motorcycles ARE Everywhere!”

Have fun with them!

A 'his and hers' matching pair - $9.99
A fist-full of five (5) pairs - $19.99
Postage is included !

H. Res. 269

In the House of Representatives, U. S.,

May 5, 2009.

Whereas approximately 7,000,000 motorcyclists ride on our Nation’s roads and highways to commute, travel, and recreate;

Whereas motorcycles are a valuable component of the transportation mix;

Whereas motorcycles are fuel-efficient and decrease congestion while having little impact on our Nation’s transportation infrastructure;

Whereas the United States is the world leader in motorcycle safety, promoting education, licensing, use of protective gear, and motorcycle awareness;

Whereas the motorcycling community is committed to decreasing motorcycle crashes through licensing, training, education, enforcement, personal responsibility, and increased public awareness;

Whereas, according to a comprehensive study conducted on motorcycle crash causation in the United States the ‘‘Motorcycle Accident Cause Factors and Identification of
Countermeasures’’ (Hurt Report), in approximately two-thirds of fatal car-motorcycle crashes, the driver of the car was at fault;

Whereas motorcycle awareness is beneficial to all road users and will help to decrease car-motorcycle crashes;

Whereas May is designated as ‘‘Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month’’; and

Whereas the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration promotes Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month to encourage riders to always wear helmets and other protective gear, never drink and ride, be properly licensed, and get training and to remind all riders and motorists to always share the road: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the House of Representatives—

(1) recognizes the contribution motorcycles make to the transportation mix;

(2) encourages all road users to be more aware of motorcycles and motorcyclists’ safety;
