About This Item

Unintentional injury-deaths related to motorcycles have more than doubled in recent years, as has the number of bikers on the road.

Our nation’s experienced a 48 percent increase in motorcycle registrations since 1995 and a steady rise in buyers, likely related to motorcycles’ popularity among Baby Boomers seeking retirement pastimes.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcycle fatalities now account for 11 percent of total road fatalities and have increased every year, from a low of 2,116 in 1997 to 4,810 in 2006.

Today, one out of every nine U.S. road fatalities involves motorcycle riders while the number of automobile deaths has actually decreased.

Interestingly, almost half of those fatally injured on a motorcycle are over the age of 40.

One significant reason for the increase in motorcycle fatalities is states repealing helmet laws. In 1975, 47 states required riders to wear helmet; now only 20 do, plus the District of Columbia. The National Safety Council has long endorsed helmet laws.
