The Air Force is seeing dramatic reductions in motorcycle mishaps, according to a recent service release. In fiscal 2019, the Air Force saw a 69% reduction in motorcycle fatalities and a 41.5% decrease in lost-time injuries over a 10-year period. Fatalities dropped from 13 in 2010 to four in 2019, and lost-time injuries during that same period decreased from 224 to 131. Officials credit the accomplishment to a collaborative program that provides airmen with skills and knowledge to operate motorcycles safely. Since 2013, the Air Force has required riders to complete training based on a lifelong learning approach that acknowledges skills diminish if not used. To keep track of how many Air Force riders there are and what training they have received, the service developed the Motorcycle Unit Safety Tracking Tool, or MUSTT, in 2010. Read more at AF.mil.
