Motorcycle accidents have been on the rise across the country. The most recent statistics available from the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety show a 9% increase in motorcycle traffic fatalities across the United States. According to federal information you are 35 times more likely to die in a motorcycle accident than in a car accident.
The probability of being seriously injured or killed in a motorcycle accident is higher than in car accidents for several reasons. You have a metal envelope and steel frame surrounding you, and seat belts in a car or truck offer you protection in an accident you do not have on a motorcycle. Additionally a motorcycle is much smaller and lighter than other vehicles they share the road with.
