Motorcycle Crash Statistics

Motorcycle riders are more vulnerable to the dangers of the road than passengers in private vehicles. Collisions between a passenger vehicle and a motorcycle almost always result in worse injuries to the motorcycle rider.

Unlike the occupants of the vehicle, a motorcyclist does not have the benefit of seatbelts or airbags. The rider also does not have the steel frame of a car to protect their body from the force of the collision.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics, motorcycle riders are 16 times more likely to be injured and 35 times more likely to be killed than car passengers.

Most motorcycle riders take the full brunt of an accident with the road, another vehicle, a tree, or other deadly forces. They are often left with permanent, debilitating injuries that change the course of their lives.

Across the country, the number of motorcycle-related fatalities and injuries is on the rise. Moreover, in 2017, the country registered 8.7 million motorcycles. In 2019, 5,014 people were killed in motorcycle accidents.

The NHTSA estimates that in 2017, motorcycle helmets saved the lives of 1,872 people. Another 749 lives could have been saved if all motorcyclists had been wearing helmets at the time of the accident. Helmets are effective in preventing motorcycle fatalities by 37 percent and motorcycle passengers by 41 percent.
