This summer has been a deadly one for Vermont motorcyclists and bicyclists. Nine motorcycle riders have died on Vermont roads in the first nine of the year – a number equal to the average number of riders who die in a typical season. Four bicyclists have died this year.
Vermont Transportation Officials are set to launch an awareness campaign to make Vermont roads safer for those who prefer two wheels.
Vermont Highway Safety Alliance Chair Kevin Marshia says he is concerned about the uptick in fatalities and is pushing motorists to share the road with motorcyclists and bicyclists.
He says his group plans to rally at the Statehouse at the end of the month to kick off the campaign.
