In 1928, a group of motorcycle officers founded our
association. The purpose of the organization was to standardize traffic laws among the many townships and cities within the
state of California and promote traffic safety. Our members represent 206 law enforcement agencies, including the California
Highway Patrol and Deputy Sheriffs in counties through the state.
In addition, we have Associate members
that work in law enforcement who are non-riding and engaged in making or enforceing traffic laws in the state of California.
These members consist of judges, mayors, chiefs, councilpersons, sheriffs, deputy sheriffs, district attorneys, city prosecutors,
plus city, county and state officials.
We are a nonprofit California safety-oriented corporation and through
our educational efforts, we distribute to public schools, bicycle rule cards, reflectorized bicycle triangles, “Don't
Use Drugs” bumper stickers and traffic-safety brochures on our campaign to “Buckle Up.” we also use Public
Service and Traffic Safety announcements on radio stations throughout the state on key holidays to inform the motoring public
to drive Safe, Sane and Sober.
MMOC monitors and reviews the proposed and the news laws of the Vehicle Code by attending
California's legal update seminars held annually. Also important to us is a fair and impartial application of the code and
traffic ordinances. These are based on a uniform code throughout the state and have high priority.

local campaigns throughout the state.
