CHP reports decline in motorcycle-involved collisions, injuries

The California Highway Patrol reports that a two-year, federally funded
Program to increase motorists' awareness of motorcyclists on California
Roadways appears to have paid off with a decline in the number of collisions
Involving motorcycles.

Preliminary figures for 2010 from the CHP's Statewide Integrated Traffic
Records system show that the number of people killed in motorcycle-involved
Collisions last year was down 9 percent from the previous year, according to
A CHP news release. The number of people injured in motorcycle-involved
Collisions appears to be down 8.5 percent.

Throughout the campaign, the CHP has emphasized the "Share the Road"
Message. To help convey that message to the motoring public, officials said,
The CHP held several presentations and conducted several highly publicized
Motorcycle safety enforcement operations.

The CHP, in conjunction with the California Department of Transportation,
Arranged to display "Share the road - Look twice for motorcyclists" on
Changeable message signs on highways statewide on several occasions
Throughout the term of the grant.

Funding for the program was provided by a grant from the California Office
Of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic safety
