NTSB Sets Meeting to Discuss Motorcycle Safety

The National Transportation Safety Board announced it will hold a public board meeting Sept. 11 at 9:30 a.m. in Washington, D.C., with motorcycle safety as the top item on the agenda. Only a few days ago, federal transportation officials released 2006 fatality data indicating the fatal accident rate on U.S. roads continues to drop -- except for motorcycling fatalities and drunken driving fatalities.

The board will discuss draft recommendations that resulted from its public forum on motorcycle safety that occurred Sept. 12-13, 2006, when the board gathered information on ongoing motorcycle research and countermeasures to reduce the likelihood of motorcycle accidents and fatalities. The meeting included participants representing government, motorcycle manufacturers, motorcyclist associations, state motorcycle rights organizations, trauma physicians, law enforcement, and insurance companies.

The other agenda item is discussion of the July 11, 2006, Chicago Transit Authority train derailment in a tunnel with a fire on the Blue line. There were no fatalities, but more than 100 passengers were injured. A live and archived webcast of the meeting will be available at www.ntsb.gov.
