Motorcycle accidents have been a persistent problem within the Army for some time. From fiscal 2003 to fiscal 2012, nearly 400 Soldiers were killed while operating a motorcycle. During that same time frame, approximately 500 Soldiers died in sedan accidents. That's a pretty slim margin when you consider the overwhelming number of sedan drivers versus motorcycle riders in the Army, and it highlights the fact that motorcycle fatalities have grown nearly every year as deaths in most other accident categories have fallen. We have to stop this now, for we can't afford another deadly summer on America's highways. - U.S. Army Combat Readiness Safety/Center graphic design
