Motorcycle Safety

The State of Maine offers tremendous scenery and creates quote a grand motorcycle riding season. Motorcycle crashes resulted in 13 fatalities in 2013, 11 in 2014, and 32 in 2015. The number of motorcycle registrations has hovered around 50,000 since 2009 and the slight changes in this number have not led to significant changes in the rate of fatalities.

The Maine Bureau of Highway Safety educates riders and automobile drivers to “Watch for Motorcycles” and encourages motorcycle riders to wear proper safety equipment while riding.
