ABATE (A Brotherhood Against Totalitarian Enactments) is a grassroots organization with chapters across the country. ABATE of Wisconsin Inc. is a motorcycle rights and safety organization dedicated to the "Freedom of the Road".
In order to protect riders' freedoms in Wisconsin, ABATE is currently working on the following issues:
- Actively opposing mandatory helmet and seat belt laws. According to ABATE of Wisconsin, the organization is not again the use of helmets or seat belts, but they are concerned about the precedent such laws would create. The concern is that the government would have another way to meddle in the personal lives of private citizens.
- Working to pass legislation that would provide funds to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation for motorcycle safety education and driver awareness programs. ABATE of Wisconsin has had success with their own safety campaigns, such as their Safe Rider Program.
- Eliminating discrimination against motorcyclists in public establishments.
