How dangerous are motorcycle accidents?
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, “More than 80% of all reported motorcycle crashes result in injury or death to the motorcyclists.” This means that the likelihood of getting severely injured on the road increases significantly for motorcycles. The NHSA also reported that motorcycle injuries and deaths are 60% higher than those of normal vehicles. Although they have become popular throughout the years, they still remain hazardous vehicles for the drivers and vehicles around them.
With this in mind, it’s important to note that there are safety programs in place dedicated to new and existing motorcyclists. Most of which focus on components such as “basic knowledge & skills needed to operate a motorcycle on street & highways safely… increasing the number of licensed motorcyclists, reducing alcohol and other drug involvement…operators of other vehicles must be knowledgeable of the special characteristics of motorcycles.”
