No Progress in Reducing U.S. Motorcycle Deaths: Report
Date:5/22/2012

TUESDAY, May 22 (HealthDay News) -- The United States made no overall progress in reducing motorcyclist deaths in 2011, according to a new report from the Governors Highway Safety Association.

An analysis of preliminary data from 50 states and the District of Columbia indicates that there were about 4,500 motorcyclist deaths last year, the same number as in 2010.

But some individual states did see decreases in these fatalities in 2011, while rates rose in other states, according to the report released Tuesday.

The decrease in fatal motorcycle crashes in New York is due to a mix of countermeasures focusing on enforcement, education and engineering, according to Barbara Fiala, commissioner of the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles and chair of the Governor's Traffic Safety Committee.

"In New York, we are educating motorists to watch for motorcycles, riders to wear bright protective gear to make themselves more visible, and law enforcement officers on conducting efficient and effective motorcycle checks," Fiala said in a news release from the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA). "It is encouraging to see that these efforts, which have been conducted with our state and local partners, are making a difference."

However, motorcyclist deaths rose in 26 states and the District of Columbia, including increases of 26 percent in South Carolina, 16 percent in Texas and 10 percent in California, the investigators found.

Earlier this month, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that, in 2011, overall motor vehicle fatalities dropped 1.7 percent, hitting their lowest level since 1949, according to the news rele
