Fatal Motorcycle Accident Statistics

When it comes to road safety, motorcyclists are one of the most vulnerable users on the road. Compared to car passengers, motorcycle riders are 16 times more likely to be injured and 35 times more likely to be killed in a crash.

Motorcycle riders are more likely to suffer severe injuries than occupants in enclosed vehicles when a car accident occurs. It’s because there are no airbags or safety belts to protect motorcycle riders. Helmets and protective riding suits are all they use to protect themselves.

In many motorcycle accidents, the consequences can be catastrophic or even fatal. In 2016, there were approximately 5,286 motorcycle deaths in the United States. In 2019, California had the most registered motorcycles in the United States. Motorcycle accidents resulting in catastrophic injuries or death have also been on the rise in the state over the years.

Hundreds of people are killed each year on motorcycles in California. Seat belts, airbags, crumple zones, and steel frames are all things that other vehicles on the road have to protect their passengers. Even if motorcycle riders and their passengers wear protective gear, they are still at greater risk of severe and even fatal injuries. A helmet and other protective gear, however, are safer than not wearing them.
