NTHSA: motorcycles deaths for 2007 (so far)

Motorcycle fatalities are up 127% in the periods from 1997 to 2006

The majority of motorcyclists killed were White/Caucasian (77%), followed by African-American (9%), Hispanic (7%), and Native American (1%).

In 2005, 27 percent of all fatally injured motorcycle operators had BAC levels of .08. An additional 7 percent had lower alcohol levels.

Forty-one percent of the 1,878 motorcycle operators who died in single vehicle crashes in 2005 had BAC levels of .08 or higher. Sixty-one percent of those killed in single-vehicle crashes on weekend nights had BAC .08 or higher.

Forty-five percent of fatally injured motorcyclists did not wear helmets.

Helmet use rates are lower in States that do not require all riders to use helmets. In 2006, 68 percent of motorcyclists in States requiring helmets wore DOT-compliant helmets, compared to 37 percent in States not requiring all riders to use helmets.

Twice as many motorcycle fatalities occurred on weekends as opposed to weekdays.

The majority of those killed in motorcycle-related crashes were motorcycle operators (90%), while motorcycle passenger fatalities have been constant at 10 percent for several years.

Over the last ten years, 90 percent of motorcyclists killed were male.

Motorcyclists are more likely to be killed in crashes involving more than one vehicle; 55 percent were killed in multi-vehicle crashes, while 45 percent were killed in single vehicle crashes.

Nearly one out of four motorcycle operators (24%) involved in fatal crashes were operating their vehicles with invalid licenses at the time the collision.

The largest number of motorcycle fatalities (41%) is still in the 501-1,000 cc engine size group, followed by 38 percent in the 1,001-1,500 cc engine size group.

Two-thirds of motorcyclists killed on 1,001-1,500 cc engine size motorcycles were riders over 40.

Source

------------------------------------

they figured out the death age for big bore bikes, but not the age for the higher # of deaths 501cc-1000cc ?

more info:

Between 1997 and 2005, motorcycle registrations have jumped 63 percent, from 3,826,373 in 1997 to 6,227,146 in 2005. But fatalities have increased disproportionately to the rise in registrations and sales. Motorcycle fatalities have increased each year from a low of 2,116 in 1997 to an all-time high of 4,810 in 2006. The proportion of motorcycle fatalities increased to 11 percent of all motor vehicle traffic crash fatalities in 2006 from 5 percent in 1997. Younger (20-29) motorcycle riders continue to account for the highest number of fatalities each year, but motorcyclists over 40 have seen the greatest increases in fatalities from 1997 to 2006. The percentage increases between 1997 and 2006 in fatalities by age group are as follows: Under 20 (42%), 20-29 (86%), 30-39 (80%), 40-49 (172%), 50-59 (307%), Over 59 (280

pg 3

the % of deaths of riders under 20 to 30 = 32% of ALL motorcycle deaths.

basically 1/3 of all deaths are young rider.

Men, over 40, on big bore 1001-1500 cc bikes, driving without helmets in traffic and drunk on the weekends has the highest increase in the study?
It would seem that this has been going on since bikes were available to the general public.

Is this increased number normal considering the increased number of registered motorcycle operators?

Those are some pretty scary numbers. I would also like to see the numbers for cruisers vs. sport bikers. I hardly ever see people on cruisers wearing any gear at all.

When "single vehicle accident" is mentioned, is the bike considered the "vehicle"? I would think so, but want to make sure they aren't talking about a bike with one car/truck, vs a bike and more than one car/truck.

so now we have 3 catagories, what about a nighthawk 250? or SV?

they both look like "standards" but the SV is no normal standard.

Are you serious? I wasn't...
I think that for this exercise we could just split everything in SS bike and not a SS bike?

You know I noticed that at the rally this last weekend too. Almost every sportbike I saw the dudes and chicks were wearing gear. The harleys and custom chopper were not wearing hardly any gear. I think on sportbikes you are pushing the envelope more than cruisers and choppers so in turn you wear more gear.
