Did you know that in 2017, there were 90 motorcycle fatalities in the Commonwealth of Kentucky? Motorcycle fatalities have decreased in recent years. The difference between 2016 and 2017 is staggering and comes in at over a 20% decrease. That’s good news for Kentucky’s motorcycle enthusiasts! The downward trend of these fatalities is due in part to Kentucky’s partial helmet law that requires motorcycle drivers under 21, or those who have held their licenses for less than one year, to wear protective headgear. Additionally attributing to the downward trend is Kentucky’s participation in the “Share the Road” program, which is a media campaign that advises the public and motorcyclists to be on the lookout for each other.
