Motorcycle Accident Injuries
By Mike Stetzer
Sure, motorcycles can be quite enjoyable. However, they can also be hard to see as well as unstable under certain conditions.
More than 120,000 motorcyclists have died in traffic crashes since the enactment of the Highway Safety and National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966.The fatality statistics are grim. Motorcycle accidents are deadly.
Per vehicle mile, motorcyclists are about 26 times as likely as passenger car occupants to die in a traffic crash.
The accident statistics for motorcycles just keep getting worse. In recent years, both fatality and injury rates have steadily increased.
In 2002, 3,244 motorcyclists were killed and an additional 65,000 were injured in motorcycle crashes in the United States - 1 percent more than the 3,197 motorcyclist fatalities in 2001 and 7 percent more than the 60,000 motorcyclist injuries reported in 2001.
