Spring is here, and as the weather continues to warm up more motorcyclists in New Jersey will be taking to the road on their bikes. Safety is an important issue when it comes to riding motorcycles, and one of the best precautions a biker can take is to wear a helmet.
According to data from the Governors Highway Safety Association, the number of pedestrian fatalities in the U.S. is the highest it has been in 28 years, with over 6,200 auto-pedestrian crash fatalities in 2018. This is significant, as many people in New Jersey prefer to walk to their destinations, rather than drive. Unfortunately, many times the streets are not safe for pedestrians.
