According to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2009 there were 4,595 fatal crashes involving motorcycles across the United States. In those crashes, more than 84,000 people were injured. The NHTSA also reports that, per vehicle mile traveled, motorcyclists are about 35 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a traffic accident.

While passenger cars are built with a huge variety of safety features and undergo extensive safety tests, motorcycles offer virtually no protection in the event of a collision. Consequently, motorcycle accidents usually result in serious injuries or death.
