Motorcycle accidents are a frequent cause of serious injury or death because motorcyclists are more vulnerable than occupants of an enclosed vehicle. Considering that motorcyclists have little protection other than their clothing, they are more than twice as likely to suffer severely following a collision.

Statistics

In a collision, a motorcyclist is four times more likely to be injured and 14 times more likely to be killed than the occupant of an enclosed vehicle. The likelihood of an injury is extremely high in motorcycle accidents – 98% of the multiple vehicle collisions and 96% of the single vehicle accidents resulted in some kind of injury to the motorcycle rider.

  • In 2006, there were 2,889 people killed and 199,337 people injured in road crashes in Canada.

As with all roadway accidents, many factors can contribute to collisions involving motorcycles. One common cause is motorists who do not see motorcyclists, and cut them off or run into them. Speed is also a common factor, with the likelihood of injuries increasing with higher rates of speed. Motorcyclists traveling too fast and losing control can lead to deadly accidents, as can other motorists speeding and being unable to avoid hitting motorcyclists. Poor road conditions, adverse weather, and poor visibility are also frequent contributing factors to motorcycle accidents.
