The Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s (MSF) newest iBook is designed to help increase motorists’ awareness of motorcyclists. According to msf-usa.org, the Motorcycle Safety Foundation iBook titled “Intersection: Sharing the Road,” is the MSF’s latest effort at promoting safer habits for current motorcyclists, prospective motorcyclists, and motorists. This latest MSF book is available in 32 countries exclusively for iPads. The book is 32 pages in length and costs only 99 cents. It was created using the iBooks author app. The book has a beautiful design and is filled with interactive videos, pictures, and diagrams. iPad users simply tap on an image in order to read captions, watch videos, or browse photo galleries.
Highlights, bookmarks, notes, etc. are synced wirelessly with other devices, and when a reader leaves the iBook to return to later, the app remembers where he or she left the text. Tim Buche, president of the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, expressed the organization’s pride in “Intersection: Sharing the Road.” He said that the goal of the iBook’s publication was to reduce the number of motorcycle crashes. Motorists are to blame for more than 35 percent of motorcycle accidents. The goal of this project was to increase motorists’ awareness of motorcycles.
The theme of the iBook is that motorists, no matter what type of vehicle they drive, must be aware of motorcycles on U.S. highways. The iBook is intended to illustrate the importance of sharing the road.
This project is the second such effort to improve motorcyclists’ safety. The first was a guide for anyone with an interest in leading group discussions about motorcycle safety. Its title is “Intersection: Leader’s Guide.”
