Arizona Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Foundation (AMSAF)’s mission since the beginning has been to educate the public on safety and awareness and help reduce crashes and fatalities in Arizona. As of June 2022, AMSAF has added a new scholarship program to help with their mission of educating on safety and awareness, with a program called Accident Scene Management (ASM), offering financial assistance to provide students a reduced cost.
Teresa has been an instructor with ASM for over 13 years, and she shares that it’s important to highlight how the Motorcycle Safety Foundation funds are being used, as every state has been given these. She’s proud to share that working directly with the ASMAF and its new scholarship opportunity will allow for more riders to become educated and experienced.
