Motorcycle fatalities are on the rise in Colorado – and the Colorado Department of Transportation wants to do something about it.
CDOT says there were a record 125 motorcycle fatalities in the Centennial State last year – a 15 percent increase over 2015. Sixty-one percent of those deaths involved people who weren’t wearing helmets – and a majority of the victims were men.
That’s why authorities are trying to offer more education to motorcyclists through the “Several Stop Training” program.
The main goal is to get motorcyclists to take more training classes – even if they already feel like experts. For more information and to sign up, go to www.comotorcyclesafety.com.
