Washington State Motorcycle Fatality Statistics

Backstory: The Hurt Report (1981 – pdf – external link) and Washington State Motorcycle Rider Safety Task Force (2006 – pdf – local copy)

From the Washington State Department of Licensing; 18 August 2010.
I have simply re-created the DOL table “as it is” — my assumption is that “blank” cells in the past are, really, “0” but I’m not willing to put a “0” where one was missing.

Here is the latest update as of today for fatal motorcycle crashes:
