Donald Trump will sign the deal on 15th January to curb the trade tension between both the countries. The president tweeted on Tuesday and said that Chinese representative will visit the White House to attend the official ceremony. He would also travel to China to talk about the second phase of the deal.

The first phase of the deal was announced by both the countries on 13th December. This deal will allow the US to plan new tariffs of $160 billion on Chinese imported items. When the deal will be signed, China will also buy farming products from the US and will improve intellectual property protections. This deal contains 86 pages of agreement that has not been revealed yet.

Robert Lighthize is the trade representative from the US side. He will join his Chinese counterpart Liu He. Both will release the details of the deal publicly when President Donald Trump will sign it.

The current trade dispute between the US and China is also impacting other nations. The dispute arose when both the countries imposed unexpected tariffs on each other. The dispute is affecting the global trade market and business investment. During the trade war, the US imposed tariffs of about $360 billion on Chinese goods such as clothing, toys, and electronics. China had also reacted to the tariff imposed by the US and put its own tariffs of more than $110 billion on several US products.

In 2018, over 8 million on-road motorcycles were registered in the United States, nearly double the number registered in 2002. While motorcycles may have several advantages when compared to conventional automobiles, they have notable drawbacks as well. This includes an increased risk of a severe injury or fatality whenever an accident occurs. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NH nearly 5,000 motorcyclists died in fatal accidents in 2018. In addition to other safety measures, being aware of helmet laws across the United States may help prevent the likelihood of a fatal motorcycle accident.

Motorcycle Helmet Laws

According to the Governors Highway Safety Administration (GHSA), 47 states and the District of Columbia have some laws regarding the use of helmets while riding a motorcycle. Only 3 states, Illinois, Iowa, and New Hampshire, do not have laws requiring helmets while operating motorcycles.

bikes Many states that enact universal helmet laws require that motorcycle operators wear a helmet at all times while riding their vehicle. Some places that have universal helmet laws include California, New York, and the District of Columbia.

Alternatively, other states require helmet laws up until a specific age or requirement is met. An example of an age-restrictive law includes South Carolina, where helmets are required for riders under the age of 21. Other states, including Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Kentucky, have laws mandating a specific amount of experience in addition to age requirements before a motorcyclist may ride without a helmet.

The Benefits of Helmets While Riding

“Helmets could greatly reduce the severity of an injury or likelihood of a fatality occurring in the case of a motorcycle accident,” said Attorney Jim Hurley of Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers. “In some cases, a helmet can be the difference between minor injuries and death.”

According to NHTSA data, individuals operating a motorcycle without a helmet are around 3 times more likely to sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the event of an accident when compared to those who drive with a helmet. Additionally, unhelmeted riders are nearly 40 percent more likely to die in a motorcycle accident.

Similarly, a study released by the National Trauma Data Bank found that wearing a motorcycle helmet reduces the severity of an injury, the likelihood of a fatality occurring, and could even decrease the amount of medical treatment required. Over the course of seven years, the National trauma Data Bank found that helmet use may have saved as much as $32.5 million total in intensive care unit costs, translating into nearly $1,800 per patient.
