ATLANTA (AP) -- New numbers show that Georgia has seen a slight drop in the number of motorcycle fatalities.

The Georgia Governor's Office of Highway Safety reported that new data made available Wednesday shows that the state had slightly fewer deadly motorcycle wrecks in 2012 than during 2011.

The statistics show that the majority of motorcycle fatalities occurred in urban areas and in the foothills of the north Georgia mountains.

Authorities say Fulton County saw the greatest number of motorcyclist fatalities statewide.

Also, DeKalb County saw a significant increase in the number of motorcyclist fatalities from 2011 to 2012.
