Motorcycle deaths decline in 2013
Fewer U.S. motorcyclists died last year than in 2012, according to preliminary data. If the numbers hold up, 2013 would be only the second year since 1997 to see a decline in motorcycle deaths. The Governors Highway Safety Association, a group of state traffic safety agencies, estimated that 4,610 motorcyclists died last year, a 7 percent decrease from the year before. The group’s assessment was based on data from the first nine months of the year and adjustments using mathematical models.
