Motorcycle Driver Crash Image

The one fact you must know before you decide to operate a motorcycle on public roadways: In fatal motorcycle crashes, the motorcycle is almost always the striking vehicle. In 40% of the crashes the motorcycle was the ONLY vehicle. You should also become aware of Attention and Blindness concepts such as Inattentional Blindness before you choose to ride on motorcycles in traffic.

To summarize the facts:
1. 38 times per person-mile more dangerous.
(27 times per vehicle-mile since cars carry more passengers.)
2. The motorcycle is almost always the striking vehicle.
3. The motorcycle driver (rider-operator) typically has a Motorcycle endorsement.

 
 

We do not promote or discourage using motorcycles, we promote making informed choices.

Please share this information with any who are considering riding motorcycles on public streets.
