Motorcycle Fatalities Are Up, Crashes Down

Motorcycle fatalities are on the rise in the state of Illinois… even though the total number of motorcycle crashes is down.


148 motorcycle drivers or passengers died in crashes last year… a 13-percent increase from the previous year.


Experts say more people… especially baby boomers… are riding motorcycles, and think their inexperience may be a factor in the increase of fatalities.


Illinois is also one of only three states that does not have a helmet law, although it ranked 8th in the nation in motorcycle fatalities last year.
