OHS Urges Motorcylists to Respect Your Ride and to Ride Safe and Ride Smart After Three Motorcycle Fatalities In One Week
Dover – The first motorcycle fatality of the year occurred in Dover on April 2nd and was quickly followed by a double motorcycle fatality in Newark on April 4th. According to Police reports, excessive speeding, no driver’s license (no motorcycle rider training), and failure to yield are factors in these crashes.
Governor Jack Markell talks about new legislation that would improve government transparency and citizens’ access to information by requiring that lobbyists specifically report on each piece of legislation, each area of the budget or the bond bill, or each proposed state agency regulation that they are lobbying to change and who they are talking with to try and make those changes.
Former Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis once said, “Sunlight is the best disinfectant,” and that’s as true today as it was when he first said it.
Dover – Motorcycle crashes have been on the rise nationally for the past ten years. And in the last five, while fatal crashes involving a motorcyclist in Delaware have gone up and down, injury crashes have steadily increased. That is why the Delaware Office of Highway Safety (OHS) has launched a new Motorcycle Safety campaign titled Respect Your Ride. This campaign, aimed at motorcyclists, directs riders to www.MotorcyclesafetyDE.org, where they can find information about the proper tools and training to make them the safest rider they can be.
