Maryland has a clear mission – to stop deaths and injuries on our roads. Many steps have been taken toward meeting this goal, but there are still challenges.

On average, more than 60 motorcyclists die in traffic crashes on Maryland roads each year. Another 1,700 riders and passengers sustain injuries. We need safety initiatives beyond basic rider training to improve their overall safety.
