More than 4,000 motorcyclists are killed each year, and nearly 100,000 more are injured in crashes on America’s roadways. Motorcyclists are more than 20 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a crash, and five times more likely to be injured, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
While motorcyclists are often blamed for the injuries they suffer, the fact is that in most crashes they are not the ones at fault. More often, they are struck by car and truck drivers who fail to control their vehicles and respect motorcyclists’ rights to be on the roadways.
