Fatality Stats

What does this number represent? 4,553

Answer: It’s the number of motorcyclists who were killed in traffic crashes in the United States in 2005.

Here are some other motorcycle statistics:

2,143 motorcycle riders killed in traffic crashes were in the 40+ age group

87,000 motorcyclists were injured in traffic crashes in the United States in 2005 (14% more than were reported in 2004)

Motorcycles accounted for only 0.3% of all vehicle miles traveled in the US in 2004

Per vehicle mile, motorcyclists are approximately 34 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a traffic crash

In 2005, 26% of fatal motorcycle crashes involved a collision with a fixed object

27% of all fatally injured motorcycle operators in 2005 had blood alcohol concentrations of .08 g/dL (grams per deciliter) or higher—a higher percentage than any other type of motor vehicle driver
(Source: Traffic Safety Facts from NHTSA's National Center for Statistics & Analysis)

whats crazy is the Florida helmet vs. no helmet fatality percentage

Im sure it's 16-23

but then again statistics can be so wrong.. lets say 90% of people 16-23 wreck

and only 30% of 23-30 wreck..

but theres only 10,000 16-23 who have a bike *9,000*

and 100,000 who have one 23-30 *30,000*

that would mean that "more" people wreck that are older if you are going by the # but if you are going by the % then the younger people crash more.

There are lies, lies and statistical lies

if you could take away the fixed object collisions (speed most likely involved) and the alcohol related ones... then the wrecks or fatalities would decrease by 50%

What catches my eye is the FL and TX helmet vs no helmet fatality percentages. Close to even in each state.

You can't necessarily say that because I bet a lot of the alcohol related fatalities involved fixed objects, so there are overlapping stats here. But you would remove a lot of the fatalities.

The fact is you're 34 times more likely to die on a motorcycle per mile driven.

Very interesting. I really don't think their should ever be a MANDATORY helmet law. Should be riders choice.
