California Motorcycle-Involved Statistics - Between 1986 and 1999, California enjoyed a 13-year decline in motorcycle-involved fatal and severe injury collisions. However, starting in 1999, these numbers steadily increased over a 10-year period peaking in 2008. It is important to note, however, that according to 2009 and 2010 data, motorcycle-involved fatal and injury collisions are down significantly.
Despite the strides in reducing motorcyclist fatality and injury collisions over the past couple of years, statistics on motorcyclists show a disproportionate rate of collisions compared to numbers of riders and to other traffic. A National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report shows that for the same per-mile exposure, motorcyclists are roughly 28 times more likely to die than occupants of other vehicles.
It should also be noted that 90 percent of the fatal victims are male.
The primary cause for 59 percent of the motorcycle collisions were attributed to three factors: unsafe speed, improper turning, and driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
Lastly, 65 percent of the fatal and 56 percent of the injury motorcycle-involved collisions were the fault of the motorcyclist.
