Motorcycle Safety Issued Targeted

The Gov­er­nors High­way Safety Asso­ci­a­tion says motor­cy­cle fatal­li­ties fell slightly in 2014, for the sec­ond straight year. Report author Allan Williams says how­ever, there is still much work to be done to help keep motor­cy­cle dri­vers safe. The report finds that motor­cy­cle fatal­i­ties are up 26 per­cent from 10 years ao, while other motor vehi­cle fatal­i­ties are down 28 per­cent. He says there have been more safety impvove­ments to other vehi­cles than motor­cy­cles, includ­ing increased seat belt use, elec­tronic sta­bil­ity con­trols and poli­cies such as grad­u­ated dri­ver licens­ing, which don’t impact motor­cy­cles. He also says things would be safer if all states adopted uni­ver­sal hel­met laws, requir­ing dri­vers of all ages to wear them.
