Motorcycle Fatalities Decline in the United States
Motorcycle Consumer News-November 2010-According to information released by the American Motorcyclists Association (AMA) federal officials have reported that motorcycling deaths on U.S. roads dropped by 16% in 2009 compared to the previous year. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently reported that motorcycling fatalities in 2009 decreased for the first time in more than a decade-dropping to 4,462 in 2009 from 5,312 in 2008. AMA officials are quick to point that while they are pleased that the number of motorcycling fatalities dropped dramatically in 2009, a one-year drop is not a trend. According to Ed Moreland, AMA Senior Vice President for government relations, "the motorcycling community looks forward to receiving some real answers about motorcycle crashes and what causes them from the new federal crash causation study that is under way at Oklahoma State University through the Oklahoma transportation center in Stillwater. The federal high way administration is overseeing that just-begun four-year, three million dollar study, which is the first major research on the subject in thirty years.
