· 75% of motorcycle accidents are due to a motorist’s failure to recognize a motorcycle.

(“I didn’t see him!”)

· The main behavior in motorist negligence against a motorcycle is making a left-hand turn while the motorcyclist is driving straight.

· Weather is a factor in only approximately 2% of accidents involving motorcycles.

· The median pre-crash speed in a motorcycle accident is 29 MPH. This is not an unsafe speed as long as it is lawful for the road.

· Helmeted riders show less injury to the head, neck, and spine.

· Almost half of fatal accidents involve alcohol. The majority of these accidents show considerable collision avoidance, including failure to brake, over braking, or lack of ability to counter steer. Don’t drink and ride!

Help motorcycle riders have a safe motorcycle season, start seeing motorcycles!
