Local News


Recent ODOT studies indicates that  in the State of Oregon, 13 motorcycle deaths during the month of August made it the worst since 1986. 

 

Spokesman Peter Murphy says 70% of the deaths are attributed to the cyclists behavior and not to another cause for rising accidents - texting.   "Well, what we're finding with the motorcycle crashes is that's not a factor. It really comes down to the person that's behind the handlebars on the motorcycle and the type of behavior that they're involved with. So, you know education, alerting first, like we're doing, that there's a problem. Secondly, making sure that there are educational opportunities in place. And three is encourage people to attend those educational sessions."

 

Murphy says those sessions are offered on a regular basis through Team Oregon Basic Rider Training.

 

Over the next three years, more riders will be required to take the riding course, until everyone is included.
