Motorcycle Accidents Up in 2012

Many people enjoy riding motorcycles on our highways. Whether it's the freedom of driving on the open road, saving money on gas, or taking advantage of a motorcycle's small size to navigate congested roadways, more people are turning to motorcycles as their primary mode of transportation.

With increased usage however, comes increased accidents and unfortunately, fatalities. In 2012 about 5,000 people were killed riding motorcycles of different kinds. It is also estimated that upwards of 50,000 people are injured in non-fatal motorcycle accidents each year.

Approximately three-fourths of motorcycle accidents involve a collision with a passenger auto. The other one quarter of accidents were single vehicle accidents involving the motorcycle colliding with the road or some other fixed object on or near the roadway.

In two thirds of the single vehicle accidents, driver error was found to be the cause of the accident. Typically a slide and fall due to braking or mis-handling of a curve due to excess speed or under-cornering. Another dangerous factor is the failure of other drivers to recognize motorcycles in traffic especially when the view of the motorcycle is limited by glare or obstructed by other vehicles.

Injuries sustained as a result of motorcycle accidents are often traumatic and severe. Due to the nature of the mode of transport, there is not much protection between the motorcycle operator and the road, and high speed collisions with highway pavement can result in serious injury.

Motorist's inability to see motorcycles and their failure to give them the proper right of way also causes many motorcycle accidents. Even when protected by a helmet and proper gear, motorcyclists can sustain traumatic spinal and brain injuries, permanent disability, and even death in a crash.
