Take a Few Minutes to Read Some Staggering Motorcycle Statistics 

Riding a motorcycle can be fun and exciting. Also, the open road, the wind in your hair, make each ride an exceptional experience. 

The motorcycle industry is growing every day. Often, riders enjoy a sense of freedom due to riding different bikes for all sorts of reasons. 

Nevertheless, riding motorcycles is a popular trend. However, statistically, there is still room to improve safety-wise.   

Here Is Some Information on Road Safety 

Commonly, accidents occur when right-of-way violations are made.  Furthermore, they happen in intersections far more than any other place.  

Frequently, fuel leakage happens. Moreover, it occurs in 62% of the time after the crash has happened. As a result, it can lead to a high risk of fire.   

Subsequently, the most common cause for a motorcycle accident is lack of attention. Also, other vehicles violating motorcycle’s right-of-way is what causes 2/3 of multiple-vehicle accidents. 

As Per the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, May thru September is where 58% of motorcycle fatalities occurred in 2017. Furthermore, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that motorcycles are more likely to be involved in crashes than cars. 

Along with that, research has proven that helmets are able to reduce the risk of a head injuries by up to 69%. Moreover, helmets help to prevent death by up to 37%

Somehow, men seem to be involved in more motorcycle related accidents.  However, this is only because there are statistically more men riders than women.   

What Should You Know About Motorcycle Accidents? 

The exact number of motorcycle deaths is unknown.  However, we do know that in the year 2018 alone, 4,985 people died. 

Moreover, that is 14% of all traffic fatalities.  Often, because of drugs or alcohol.  

Another example is, “Lane Splitting” by motorcycles.  Because it can be fatal if a car turns left. 

Furthermore, research shows that 4.24% of motorcycle accidents are usually fatal.   

Also, motorcyclists are 29 times more likely to suffer fatal injuries than car passengers. Not to mention, motorcycles make up over 3% of registered vehicles. 

Finally, you should always remember to wear your helmet.
