Laconia Motorcycle Week kicked off on June 8, 2024. This will be the 101 version of the popular New Hampshire event which draws motorcycle enthusiasts throughout the New England region and beyond. NH residents can expect to see an influx of motorcycle operators throughout the week. Reports have indicated that there has been an uptick in motorcycle related accidents at this time.

Sadly, 2024 is shaping up to outpace 2023 in motorcycle fatalities. In 2023, 41 motorcyclists died in fatal roadway accidents. As we approach the midway point of 2024, we are 9 fatalities above last year’s pace.

Reported Motorcycle Accidents:

Before the Laconia Motorcycle Week event started, during the evening of June 5, 2024, a motorcyclist travelling on Oceanview Avenue in Seabrook was thrown from his bike after overtaking another vehicle, re-entering the lane, and colliding with the back of a pick-up truck. The motorcyclist suffered fatal injuries as a result of the crash.

Earlier this week, on June 11, 2024, two motorcycles collided on Louden Road in Concord. Three people were injured in the crash and required hospitalization.

Laconia Motorcycle Week Precaution and Safety:

While none of these incidents are related to Laconia Motorcycle Week, due to the increase in motorcycle riders attending the event, everyone should be vigilant while on the road. Most motorcycle riders are skilled operators with years of experience. However, despite being cautious, they are difficult to detect due to their size and are oftentimes obscured by blind spots.

Lane changing becomes a much more difficult undertaking when motorcyclists are on the road. Additionally, motorists should give motorcycle riders space when traveling behind them. Oftentimes, motorcycles will “engine brake,” which reduces the speed of the motorcycle by releasing the throttle. However, this maneuver does not make the brake lights turn on.

At the close of 2024’s motorcycle week, the Department of Safety’s Fatal Crash Unit reported more accidents. The department indicated there was 82 crashes during motorcycle week, 11 injuries, and 1 fatality. Those figures as slightly lower than 2023, which reported 92 crashes, 15 injuries, and no fatalities.

Throughout New Hampshire, in 2024, there have been 47 fatal collisions, 11 of which involved motorcycles.
