Motorcycle Fatalities at All Time High
This year has been the deadliest for motorcycle riders in over ten years. There have been 14 deaths reported this year. That's the highest number since 16 were recorded in 1991, two years after a mandatory helmet law went into effect. In 1981 there were 40 people killed on motorcycles, the highest number of related fatalities since 1976, when modern record-keeping statistics first were kept.
