Motorcycle Collisions Decline On California Roadways

The California Highway Patrol’s “Share the Road” public service campaign appears to be working.  The CHP is reporting a decline in the number of collisions involving motorcycles.  *CHP Officer David Martinez says over the past two years, highway electronic message boards have often displayed the message, quote “Share the road.  Look twice for motorcyclists.”  And there was also an educational component.

“We had a lot of classes going on through some of the local colleges such as Sierra College who had a motorcycle course which is mandatory for drivers under 21 to receive the motorcycle endorsement.”

 Last year, the number of people killed in motorcycle-involved collisions was down nine-percent and the number of those injured was down eight-point-five percent.
