While motorcycle accidents are not as common as car accidents, they can be significantly more dangerous. Because motorcyclists are not shielded by the same protective barriers as occupants of passenger vehicles, motorcycle accidents are more likely to result in serious injuries and fatalities than car accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 96,000 motorcyclists were injured and 5,290 motorcyclists were killed in traffic accidents in 2008.
Most motorcycle accidents are not caused by the motorcyclists themselves. Most motorcycle accidents are caused by motorists in other vehicles failing to see a motorcyclist or failing to yield the right of way to a motorcyclist. Other common causes for motorcycle accidents include speeding, aggressive driving, poor weather conditions, improper braking and turning, hazardous road conditions, road hazards, lane splitting, and alcohol-related accidents.
