First and foremost, we would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family of the riders. Losing a loved one is never easy, and we know the stress and anguish the family members may be going through during these times.

Motorcycle accidents can be oftentimes serious. A report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says that in 2016, there were approximately 2,200 motorcycle drivers involved in crashes in the Garden State, in which there were 69 reported casualties. To combat this issue, New Jersey law states that riders must wear a DOT approved helmet at all times. Proper helmet use can reduce a motorcyclist’s risk of a fatal injury by 37% and the risk of a head injury by up to 69%, according to a report from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Obeying traffic laws and making sure you are well prepared before going on the road can reduce the chances of being in an accident.
