What Factors Have Contributed to Motorcycle Rider Fatalities Over the Years?
Below, you’ll find a list of some of the common factors that have impacted motorcycle fatalities in the last 23 years.
In the early 2000s, the motorcycle fatality rate began to rise. Factors contributing to this increase included a surge in motorcycle ownership, the popularity of riding among older adults, and a lack of strict helmet laws in some states.
Mid to Late 2000s
By the mid-2000s, the motorcycle fatality rate reached its peak. The rise was partially attributed to the combination of higher motorcycle ownership, increased traffic congestion, and inadequate safety measures. Some states also had repealed or weakened helmet laws during this time, which led to more fatalities.
Late 2000s to Early 2010s
In response to the rising fatality rates, many states began to reintroduce or strengthen helmet laws. This led to a decrease in motorcycle fatalities in some areas. Additionally, increased awareness of safety measures and advances in motorcycle safety technology contributed to a decline in fatality rates.
