Fatal Motorcycle Accident Statistics

Motorcycle accidents often have catastrophic effects on motorcycle riders than other involved parties such as drivers or occupants of enclosed vehicles. According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics, motorcycle riders have 16 times the risk of injury and 35 times the fatal crash risk compared to car passengers.

It’s because motorcycle riders are less protected from the dangers on the road. Although wearing helmets was estimated to be 37% effective in preventing motorcycle deaths, it can only protect them from traumatic brain injuries. The rest of their bodies are completely vulnerable to other injuries. Some of the common causes of motorcycle accidents are distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, reckless driving, bad weather, wrong-way driving, and failure to observe traffic laws.
