After receiving complaints, several of which resulted in injury, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is investigating thousands of Harley-Davidson motorcycles with potential defects, Fortune reported.
According to reports, the investigation will span 430,000 motorcycles that are equipped with an anti-lock braking system, or ABS, which may suddenly malfunction. Complaints revealed that the feature, intended to prevent motorcyclists from experiencing braking problems in an emergency, has failed them in various situations. In the 43 complaints received by the NHTSA regarding the braking issue, at least three accidents and two injuries have happened. The recent problem appears to be the opposite of Harley-Davidson’s 2014 issue that affected 60,000 motorcycles; then, the brakes would suddenly engage. A spokesperson for the company said they are cooperating in the NHTSA’s investigation.

The Department of Natural Resources of Iowa recently issued safety tips for boaters to keep them and other people safe while enjoying this year’s boating season, a report of the Clinton Herald stated on June 7.
Boating Law Education Coordinator Susan Stocker reported that boaters should follow “basic boating safety tips” as there are about 30 to 40 boat-related accidents in the state every year.
- Make sure that lighting devices and boat trailer tires are in good condition before going out to the waters.
- Boaters are urged to make sure that their boats are equipped with proper and required safety devices for all passengers on-board. Safety devices such as lighting and horns, or any sound device, should be properly working before sailing.
- Boats that have a length of 16 feet or more should have safety equipment in case a passenger accidentally falls into the water.
- Fire extinguishers are required for boats that have a minimum of 10 horsepower motors.
- Boaters who are expecting to consume alcoholic beverages on-board are required to have a dedicated sober operator.
- A boating course is required for boat operators whose ages range from 12 to 17, while those passengers younger than 12 must wear life jackets while on-board.
Stocker reminded boaters that the legal blood alcohol limit for boat operators should not be greater than 0.08 percent and to make sure that their boat’s registration is valid. As required by the law, boaters should report any boat-related accidents, especially if the extent of property damage exceeds $2,000.
