Motorcycle Accident Statistics

April 26, 2016

It’s warming up out there, and if you’re like us, you’re bringing the motorcycles out of storage and getting ready for the rubber to meet the road. What do motorcycle accident statistics for motorcycles in Ohio tell us about staying safe? Read our free PDF infographic, “Ohio Motorcycle Injuries & Statistics,” to find out what you and your motorcycle-loving friends need to know.

What Every Rider Should Know

As the  weather heats up, more motorcycles will be out on roads and highways. Ohio ranks fifth in motorcycle registrations nationwide, with about 390,494 registered motorcycles on the road this season. That’s a lot of bikes.

For most, it’s a liberating and leisurely activity. Feeling the wind through your hair and riding down the highway with your friends nearby can be exhilarating. For others, it’s a main mode of transportation that takes them to and from work with cheap trips to the gas pump.

Either way, it’s always a risky ride, and could end in devastation when you least expect it. Consider, for example, unhelmeted riders accounted for 65% of motorcycle deaths, and motorcycle passengers are 20 times more likely to get injured than the motorcycle operator.

Take a few minutes to look-over our infographic “Ohio Motorcycle Injuries & Statistics” and see what Ohio riders need to know to stay happy on their hogs. Please share with your motorcycle-loving friends and family.
