Understanding Motorcycle Accidents & Safety
The Centers For Disease Control And Prevention, released data about motorcycle accidents which states: “The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) tracks fatal injuries suffered in motor vehicle traffic crashes. In the United States, motorcycles account for three percent of registered vehicles and only 0.6 percent of vehicle miles traveled.”
The CDC also cites the importance of wearing a motorcycle helmet: “NHTSA estimates that $8 billion in economic societal harm could be prevented if all motorcycle riders wore helmets. When motorcyclists and their passengers wear helmets, the risk of death is reduced by almost 40 percent and the risk of head injury by almost 70 percent.”
Regarding motorcyclist fatalities and other data for the state of Washington, the Washington Traffic Safety Commission states: In our state, motorcycles make up just 4% of the registered vehicles, but accounted for 14% of the fatalities between 2013 and 2017. And motorcyclist fatalities continue to rise.”
