Motorcycle Accident Statistics

Motorcycles have become a great alternative for riding cars, especially when traveling short distances. However, riding a motorcycle poses more risks than driving a car. According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics, motorcycle riders have 16 times the risk of injury and 35 times the risk of a fatal crash compared to car passengers.

Motorcycle accidents are quite rampant across the country. In 2018 alone, approximately 82,000 motorcycle-related injuries were reported, while 4,985 people were killed due to motorcycle accidents. California isn’t particularly a safe place for motorcyclists either. In 2017, 16,505 motorcycle accidents occurred on California roadways, which resulted in 15,527 injuries and 541 deaths.

But, this doesn’t mean that you should be afraid of riding motorcycles. As long as you are wearing proper safety gear, it can significantly decrease the chances of sustaining fatal injuries in case an accident happens. Wearing helmets was estimated to be 37% effective in preventing motorcycle deaths.
