GHSA Supports Government Call for Nationwide Motorcycle Safety Improvements

By Alpert Schreyer on November 29, 2012

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) recently released a new evaluation of the efforts by state and federal governments to increase motorcyclist safety, calling for changes and improvements on a wide scale. Along with the call for improvements, the Governors Highway Safety Administration (GHSA) has announced that they support the GAO’s findings and wishes.

The GAO has suggested that Congress allow states to have more flexibility in the use of federal highway safety funds in order to better address motorcycle safety issues. At the moment, states can only use the funds on motorcyclist training and raising awareness. The GAO wants states to be able to use funds for enforcing helmet and safety laws, developing strategy plans for motorcycle safety, creating programs to prevent impaired motorcycle usage and promote voluntary helmet use, and support motorcycle advisory committees.

Additionally, the GAO wants the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to provide states with information that can be used to reduce motorcycle accidents. This includes conducting research into how states can best improve motorcyclist safety and how to encourage safe motorcyclist behaviors.

The GHSA has stated that they approve of the GAO’s calls to action and state that the NHTSA is scheduled to release a plan on guiding motorcycle safety research efforts in early 2013.

Motorcycle accidents can easily result in some of the worst and most commonly fatal injuries in a crash, and even the safest motorcyclists cannot prevent the actions of a negligent driver. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle crash caused by another party, you have the right to seek compensation for losses from those at fault. The Prince George’s County motorcycle accident injury lawyers at Alpert Schreyer can aid you in your search for justice and compensation. To learn more, call us today at (866) 444-6363.
