Did singer's jacket protect him from serious motorcycle injury?

For many years, motorcyclists, traffic safety advocates and everyone in between have been debating the appropriateness and efficacy of universal motorcycle helmet laws, which require every biker, regardless of age or level of experience, to wear a helmet at all times when on a motorcycle. Pro-helmet advocates say that helmets are the only way to protect motorcyclists who from serious injury and death. Motorcyclists say that they should be able to decide whether or not to wear a helmet for themselves.

How can San Diego motorcycle deaths be prevented?

Last year, approximately 4,500 people were killed in motorcycle accidents in California and across the country. This means that about one out of every seven people who died on U.S. roads did so in motorcycle-related crashes. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcyclists are about 30 times more likely to be killed in a motor vehicle accident than drivers and passengers are to die in car crashes.

Strong traffic safety laws result in fewer accident deaths

It may seem like a no-brainer, but a new report is claiming that the states with the safest roads are those with the strongest traffic safety laws. Specifically, California and the 17 other states that ranked the highest in the annual report from the Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety also spend the least on car, truck and motorcycle accidents and related costs.
