Official Motorcycle Accident Statistics
Motorcycle Accident Statistics
Been riding on your bike this week? The legal team at Sorrymate.com have all been out and luckily all came back in one piece, but there are some startling motorcycle accident statistics about those who aren’t so lucky and end up in a motorbike accident.
Official statistics show that 66% of motorcycle fatalities occurred on rural roads. This makes the prospect of a weekend ride out along country roads all the more dangerous for the biking community. Accidents peak at between 2pm and 4pm..maybe a post lunch lapse in the concentration of car drivers?
When we’re not riding of a weekend then many bikers are commuting to and from work, and official statistics for weekday accidents show that motorcycle accidents peak from 7am to 10am and 4pm to 7pm.
Of all the accidents recorded above, official statistics show that motorcyclists were nearly 29 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a crash per vehicle miles travelled. That’s a sobering statistic and makes it even more important that should you have an accident and become one of these statistics that you have expert, experienced, biker lawyers representing you in your motorcycle accident claim.
