Motorcycle accidents can be incredibly dangerous, given the inherent lack of protection that a motorcyclist has compared to a passenger in a car or truck. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 4000 motorcyclists are killed in traffic accidents every year. Because motorcycles represent a relatively low percentage of total vehicle miles traveled (VMT) in the United States, the fatality rate based on VMT is higher for motorcyclists than for occupants of cars or trucks.
