The more quality education that can be distributed, the safer we all will be on the road. Road Guardians will be, without a doubt, a driving force in those efforts and we’re proud as a firm to be a part of it.
Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) January 14, 2010
When the weather turns warm and the sun stays out longer, some residents of North Carolina may opt to go with two wheels rather than four in their daily travel. The subtracted number of wheels on the road leads to the elevated risk of serious injury in an accident.
In hopes to promote motorcycle safety across the Tar Heel state, the personal injury law firm of Hardison & Cochran d/b/a Hardison & Associates has teamed up with the nationwide motorcycle safety program, Road Guardians.
Accident Scene Management Inc. (ASMI) is the organization behind the launch of Road Guardians. Vicki Roberts-Sanfelipo, a registered nurse, certified EMT, author and avid motorcyclist, established the non-profit organization in 1996. The educational courses offered by ASMI are recognized by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA), American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF). Many insurance companies offer discounts for course completion.
The goal of Road Guardians is to reduce injuries and fatalities to motorcyclists by promoting safety on the road and online at roadguardians.org. The Web site will serve as a one-stop online resource for motorcycle safety, biker-owned businesses and legal networking resources. The Road Guardians program and Web site provides members with quick access to safety education and rider resources whatever their skill level, supporting the beginner through the life-long enthusiast.
The partnership between Hardison & Cochran and ASMI began when associate attorney Kimberly Miller participated in the Accident Scene Management Inc. program in 2008. After completion of the educational course, she began speaking at ASMI events on the topics of Good Samaritan Laws in North Carolina and motorcycle insurance and still presents across the state to this day.
“In our dealings with Vicki and Accident Scene Management, Inc., we found out that she didn’t work with just anyone," said Hardison & Cochran’s Managing Partner Benjamin T. Cochran. "You had to earn her respect. Due to that fact, we were flattered and humbled when Vicki approached us with this opportunity.
“The more quality education that can be distributed, the safer we all will be on the road. Road Guardians will be, without a doubt, a driving force in those efforts and we’re proud as a firm to be a part of it,” added Cochran.
