It has been a deadly year for bicyclists and motorcyclists in Vermont. In the past 10 years, one bicyclist was killed in Vermont. But already in 2015, there have been four bicycle-related fatalities.

In addition, on average, roughly nine motorcyclists are killed every year. The state has already reached that number in the first eight months of this year.
