  • Motorcycle Safety Action Plan 2004 (266 KB) The year 2003 was the deadliest for motorcyclists in over a decade. In 2003, 100 motorcyclists died in crashes. There were also 2,512 crashes involving motorcycles and 2,408 motorcyclist injuries including 654 who were seriously injured. In response to these fatalities and injuries, the Wisconsin State Patrol has developed the 2004 Motorcycle Safety Action Plan based on several public meetings held to date. The Plan's overall measurement of success will be to reduce the rate of motorcyclist fatalities and injuries within Wisconsin below 2003 levels. The plan represents a roadmap to address the immediate problem, and to demonstrate progress. Note that because the focus of the 2004 action plan is on those strategies which will affect the 2004 riding season, the 2004 action plan will not include all the long-range strategies (more than one year to develop) and ideas that have been obtained to date. Instead, long-range strategies will be addressed and included in the Department's Highway Safety Strategic Plan to begin development later in 2004.
