Motorcycle Accidents

Posted by Alessandro G. Assanti | Mar 14, 2021

Motorcyclists face more risks on the road than do people in passenger vehicles. Motorcycles have fewer safety features than cars, and their riders are more exposed to other vehicles and hazards on the road. Understanding these risks can help motorcyclists avoid serious crashes.

Motorcycles made up just 3 percent of all registered vehicles in the United States in 2016 and accounted for less than 1 percent of all vehicle miles traveled in the country.

But per registered vehicles, the fatality rate for motorcyclists was six times the fatality rate for people in cars. And if you look at the fatality rate per vehicle miles traveled, motorcyclist fatalities happened nearly 28 times more often than fatalities involving people in cars.
