California has over 800,000 registered motorcycles. This, of course, means that there are also more motorcycle accidents in California than in other states. In 2017 alone, 16,505 motorcycle accidents happened in California, leaving 15,527 injured and 541 people dead.

Common causes of motorcycle accidents are distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, reckless driving, bad weather, wrong-way driving, and failure to observe traffic laws. Motorcycle riders are encouraged to dress appropriately and wear a helmet every time they ride their motorcycle to prevent fatal injuries.
