The Motorcycle Safety Foundation announced the promotion of Robert Gladden, an advocate of motorcycle safety and a life-long motorcycle enthusiast, to Vice President of the foundation. Gladden will hold the safety of California motorists in his hands as he has been given the task of overseeing the people who manage the California Motorcyclist Safety Program designed to help institute safety programs with the goal of reducing serious injuries and fatalities caused by motorcycle accidents.
The California Motorcyclist Safety Program helps implement programs that train motorists in cycling safety and develop support for safety legislation. Robert Gladden will oversee development of relationships, monitor quality assurance and delivery systems, evaluate new proposed sites and other duties given to him as a part of the Vice President Promotion.
Robert Gladden has been with the Motorcycle Safety Foundation since 2001, where he led the Motorcycle Safety Foundation DirtBike School. He has been a part of cyclist safety advocating ever since. His role in management of the California Motorcyclist Safety Program was granted in part because of his familiarity with the program as a project manager since 2004. He was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation for his service with the program that helped train over 70,000 motorcycle students in 2008.
The Motorcycle Safety Foundation hopes that Gladden will continue helping to advocate for rider safety and accident prevention across California and other states as well. The more safety awareness that can be spread across the nation, the more people who will be saved from injuries related to negligent driving.
