MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT STATISTICS
Seeing motorcyclists traveling on California’s roadways is not uncommon. Most motorcyclists either do it to travel from place to place or do it for recreational purposes. Unfortunately, many drivers fail to take extra precautions to protect motorcyclists, who are unprotected and defenseless compared to passengers in enclosed vehicles.
According to NHTSA, motorcyclists have 16 times the risk of injury and 35 times the risk of fatal crashes compared to car passengers. Motorcycle mishaps are all too common in the Golden State. In 2016, there were over 548 fatal motorcycle accidents in California, according to the NHTSA’s Traffic Safety statistics.
Even though some accidents are unavoidable, car drivers are often to blame for motorcycle accidents and the injuries they cause. Common causes of motorcycle accidents are distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, reckless driving, bad weather, wrong-way driving, and failure to observe traffic laws.
