According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, roughly 80 percent of all motorcycle collisions involve injury or death. On the other hand, roughly 20 percent of all car crashes result in injury or death. Rather obviously, the chances of getting hurt in a motorcycle accident are significantly higher, and those chances are only exacerbated when a biker is up against a motorist who is blatantly disregarding the rules and regulations of the road.
Motorcycle Crash Facts
