In spite of the fact that deaths on American roads fell to their lowest levels in more than half a century, motorcycle accidents showed no such decline. Closer to home, the number of fatal Portland motorcycle accidents also showed no signs of being on the wane.
It was very much a good news-bad news story from the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), when they released the most recent road traffic fatality statistics on May 22. The good news was that overall motor vehicle deaths had dropped to the lowest levels recorded since 1949, but the same report showed that there was no fall in the number of fatal motorcycle accidents, in spite of an overall decrease in road deaths.
