Fatal Motorcycle Accidents Statistics

More than 8.6 million motorcycles have been registered, proving that people consistently find motorcycles to be a convenient and cost-effective means of transportation.

Motorcycles’ inherent instability and lack of protective structures in the event of an accident are inevitable topics of discussion.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 42,338 people were killed in automobile accidents in 2020. (NHTSA). The 2019 total of 39,107 deaths exceeded the rate seen in 2019. Most motorcycle accidents occur when the rider collides with another vehicle, typically a car.

Motorcyclists in fatal accidents in 2020 had the highest rate of alcohol impairment of any driver group.

The lives of motorcyclists are put in danger most often when other drivers ignore traffic signals and laws by changing lanes illegally or failing to stop at stop signs and lights.

Motorcycles are less stable than other vehicles because they only have two wheels instead of four. Therefore, the rider’s skill is essential for maintaining control. Riding a motorcycle puts you in danger of being involved in an accident more than driving a car, truck, or SUV.
