Motorcycle Accident Statistics Show Collisions Can be Lethal

Riding a motorcycle can be dangerous even when you take safety precautions. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released a report that showed the 2007 figures for motorcycle accidents in the state of California. According to the report:

  • There were a total of 495 motorcyclists that lost their lives in 2007.
  • Of those, 86% were wearing helmets.
  • A total of 30% were found to have a blood-alcohol level of 0.10 or higher.
  • In 2006 the NHTSA reported over 10,000 motorcyclists that were injured while riding in California.
  • Those that were found to be at a higher risk of motorcycle-caused deaths were people between the ages of 15 and 24.

The study showed that 2,381 injuries were sustained in 2007 while 82 people lost their lives. The group with the second highest fatality rates was people between 25 and 44 years old. This data represents a 102% increase in motorcycle fatalities when compared to the figures for the years between 1998 and 2005.
