Issue Brief

All Motorcyclist Fatality Reports

Based upon preliminary data, GHSA projects that motorcycle fatalities declined at least 2 percent from 2009.

While the national decline is good news, there are some areas of concern, such as: a much smaller decline than the prior year; a 3 percent increase in fatalities in the third quarter; an expected rise in motorcycle travel; and a recent drop in motorcycle helmet use.
