New Study: No Progress in Reducing Motorcyclist Deaths
Strengthening Economy and Rising Gas Prices Don’t Bode Well
WASHINGTON, D.C.—A report released today by the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) finds that no progress was made in reducing motorcyclist deaths in 2011.
Based upon preliminary data from 50 states and the District of Columbia, GHSA projects that motorcycle fatalities remained at about 4,500 in 2011, the same level as 2010.
Meanwhile, earlier this month, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration projected that overall motor vehicle fatalities declined 1.7 percent in 2011, reaching their lowest level since 1949.
Motorcycle deaths remain one of the few areas in highway safety where progress is not being made.
