Living Free and Dying in June...

Post  News Hawk on Sun Mar 30, 2014 9:53 pm

It certainly seems like New Hampshire's "Bike Month" is always accompanied with motorcycle traffic deaths.

While some of the danger involved in riding motorcycles can be attributed to poor driving skills or intoxication, there are facts that do not lend themselves to interpretation.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) noted that during its last review of data in 2012, motorcycle fatalities increased over 7 percent, while states without helmet laws showed ten times more fatalities than those that mandated helmet use when riding a bike.

About 15 percent of all highway deaths were from motorcycle riders, making motorcycle riders around 30 times more at risk than car and truck drivers. (!)
