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.
Governor Jack Markell talks about the progress Delaware is making on the two year “mile marker” since winning the federal Race to the Top as federal Education Secretary Arne Duncan visits Delaware.

In the last ten years, millions of Americans have served their nation in Iraq or Afghanistan.
In answering the call to action, these brave men and women volunteered to put themselves directly in harm’s way, thousands of miles from home. And when they came home, so many found – and are still finding – the recession that had years of devastating effects on our national economy hit veterans who served in those foreign conflicts even harder.
Right now, thousands of homeowners are cleaning up and filing insurance claims following an outbreak of devastating tornadoes across the U.S. However, according to a February 2012 survey from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), more than half of Americans don’t have a home inventory of their possessions, putting them at risk for inadequate home insurance coverage, should severe weather strike.
