NH traffic deaths take sharp decline
“Let’s hope we’re on the right path,” New Hampshire Highway Safety Agency coordinator Peter M. Thomson said.
This compares with 56 roadway deaths during the same period last year of which nine involved motorcyclists, Thomson reported.
Thomson said he can’t explain the jump. But he attributed the lower numbers seen in the prior few years to aggressive campaigns by law enforcement to target speeding, distracted drivers and those under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
“If we keep it going in the right direction...it will be a very, very helpful situation,” Thomson said.
