NORTHBROOK, Ill., Oct. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Motorcyclists are about 37 times more likely than car occupants to die in a crash, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Allstate is helping bikers stay safe on the road by donating $5 to Road Guardians for every person who calls for a quote for motorcycle insurance.
"I believe Allstate's coverage for cyclists is the best there is. But, we know that regardless of insurance coverage, a rider has to take personal steps to ensure safety on the road," said Chuck Paul, vice president of Allstate's emerging businesses. "Anyone who gets a quote for their bike through Allstate is helping their fellow riders stay safe at the same time."
Allstate's quote donation program with the Road Guardians will run through December 31, 2010. Road Guardians provides safety and education resources to cyclists, including a first responder-based curriculum that teaches riders how to start proper & effective emergency care at the scene of a motorcycle accident until help arrives. To date, nearly one-third of the students who've received Road Guardians first-responder training have used their skills within three years of instruction.
"The funding from Allstate will be used to help train and educate road riders to be there for their fellow cyclists when they need it most," said Vicki Sanfelipo, president of Road Guardians. "We're working with Allstate to help save lives by offering on-the-road training to help prevent and respond to crashes."
Riders who are interested in getting a quote from Allstate that benefits Road Guardians can call 877-871-0500 for a motorcycle insurance quote. For every completed quote, $5 will go to the Road Guardians.
DISCLAIMER: No purchase necessary. Program applies to motorcycle insurance. For each quote received, $5 will benefit the Road Guardians. Maximum Allstate donation is $100,000.
