No Progress Made in Reducing Motorcycle Deaths in 2011

motorcycle deaths

Despite safer roads and the fact that motor vehicle fatalities were at an all-time low, motorcycle fatalities did not decline in 2011.

When comparing the first nine months of 2010 with 2011, the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) found that there was only a 1.7 percent decline in motorcycle deaths. Additionally, the preliminary data from all 50 states and the District of Columbia included in the GHSA's report suggests that the number of motorcycle fatalities for all of 2011 remained at the same level as 2010.

The report did include some good news – 23 states saw a decrease in motorcycle fatalities, with some states showing huge declines. However, there were still 26 states and the District of Columbia that experienced an increase in motorcycle deaths.

Pennsylvania had a 13 percent reduction in motorcycle fatalities in the first nine months of 2011, dropping from 197 to 171 deaths. Officials attributed this decline to the state's motorcycle education, safety, and training programs.
