Motorcycle Fatalities Study Released   Leave a comment


The Governors Highway Safety Association recently released some preliminary statistics on motorcycle fatalities for 2009. The good news is that for the 9 months for which they have solid numbers, fatalities are down 16% from 2008. They also estimate that when the last quarter numbers are finalized, fatalities for the entire year will be down at least 10%.

Some of the states provided their opinions about why fatalities had decreased, the report cites poorer economic conditions, fewer beginners, more safety training and bad weather as potential reasons for the decrease. Whatever the actual reasons, it’s always good to see a decrease in those numbers!!!

The report is short, worth reading and is available at:  http://www.naghsr.org/html/publications/spotlight/pdf/spotlight_motorcycles.pdf
