The North Canton Police Department would like to remind motorcyclists that skill and gear can protect you and a helmet is the most important equipment a biker can use. In 2015, 1,922 motorcyclists died in crashes who were not wearing a helmet. A motorcycle crash is a "violent event" and a motorcycle does not offer the level of protection that a car or truck does. According to NHTSA more than 80% of all reported motorcycle crashes result in injury or death. Please ride safe in the upcoming months and always remember to wear your helmet.

Thank you to our Dispatchers and all they do for our Community!
